Modernisation of the Princess Elizabeth Hospital

Thursday 27 August 2020

HSC reaches another milestone in the exciting PEH modernisation programme which will resolve pressing clinical needs faced by the hospital in its current layout.

The programme will be in phases to minimise disruption to the site but still deliver within a relatively short timeframe - 7 years in total.

HSC has now reached the point in the programme where a preferred design has been selected and planning applications are being drafted. The first clinical areas are due to open in 2022 and the hospital is expected to be fully operational by 2027.

Phase 1 includes:

Details of all phases can be found here: https://gov.gg/pehmodernisation

Jan Coleman, Director of Hospital Modernisation said:

'Building a hospital is an extremely complex programme and I am grateful to the staff from HSC and the MSG who have contributed so far to the various discussions and workshops that have resulted in the preferred design being identified.

'A major capital project of this nature will act as a significant stimulus to the local economy and is a key element of the Island's Covid-19 recovery strategy. Specialist hospital development will require off-island expertise but will be supported by the local construction companies and will benefit the local economy.

'A series of public engagement events is planned in order that the community can view and understand the preferred design and the thought processes behind the decisions that have been made.'
