The Hampshire Together programme has today provided an update on progress towards public consultation on proposals that could deliver a new hospital for Hampshire.
Maggie MacIsaac, Chief Executive of Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group, and Alex Whitfield, Chief Executive of Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said:
“In discussion with national and regional NHS colleagues, we have agreed together that our plans for a new hospital will be even stronger if we can incorporate newly available national planning information and recent learnings from others around the country. We also want to ensure our plans are as affordable as possible and deliver the best possible value for money. We have therefore decided to do some more detailed planning work before taking our plans out to public consultation.
We look forward to continuing to work with partners across the Hampshire health and care system as well as regionally and nationally to bring our vision for a new hospital for Hampshire and improved health services to life for local people.”
