Funding announced for new hospital in Harlow
The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) is thrilled to share the fantastic announcement this weekend that it is to receive funding to rebuild a new hospital in Harlow for its patients, community and people.
The allocation for the trust will be part of phase one of the Government's health infrastructure project, aimed at modernising NHS buildings and working with the latest technology.
A new hospital and the use of technology aligns perfectly with the ten year plan for the trust - entitled PAHT 2030 - and will make a real difference to our patients and to everyone at PAHT. It also aligns with the NHS Long Term Plan.
Lance McCarthy, chief executive, The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS TRust, expressed delight at the announcement of the capital funding. He said: "I am absolutely delighted that funding to rebuild a new hospital in Harlow, for the patients and people we care for, has been announced.
"This will make a real difference to our patients, clinicians and support teams who will benefit from a modern, purpose-built hospital with specialist equipment to meet their needs.
"We can now put into action our plans to speak with local people about their thoughts and suggestions on the new hospital to make sure that it meets their needs into the future.
We greatly appreciate the continuous support we have received from the healthcare community, local councillors and MPs. Robert Halfon, MP for Harlow, has consistently advocated our cause for which we are very grateful."
