Green light for next phase of Oldham Royal revamp
A 70,000 sq ft block featuring four 24-bed wards was given the go-ahead alongside the proposed conversion of the former Natwest Bank on Mumps into office space.
Under plans from Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust, Café Royal and J-block at Oldham Royal Hospital will be partially demolished and a modern four-storey block constructed.
This element is the latest part of a wider project. In 2020, Oldham Council approved plans for another new building on the site of the former K-block. Contractor Integrated Health Projects, a joint venture between Vinci Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine is currently delivering that scheme.
Arup is the planning consultant and Day Architectural designed the building.

In the town centre, applicant Atif Malik’s plans to convert the former Natwest building on Mumps into 10,000 sq ft of office space were also granted planning permission.
The project will see the grade two-listed building stripped out and refurbished to create co-working accommodation.
Phillip Lambert Architecture advised on the scheme.
