NHS Christie proposes Manchester hospital redevelopment

The trust wants to build a 101,400 sq ft advanced scanning and imaging centre fronting Wilmslow Road at its existing cancer research facility in Withington.

Deloitte has submitted plans on behalf of the Christie NHS Foundation Trust for the redevelopment of The Christie Hospital building, which supports and treats more than 60,000 patients each year.

The DAY Architectural-designed scheme would see the demolition of the hospital’s existing Holt Entrance to make way for a new three-storey building.

A scanning and imaging centre featuring state-of-the-art equipment and improved waiting rooms would occupy the ground floor. This centre would allow the relocation and replacement of the existing unit that does not currently meet patient experience requirements, according to a planning statement.

This relocation would also provide critical links to the clinical services and medical experts located within the adjacent Paterson Building, which was completed in May to provide more than 113,300 sq ft of laboratory and research space, as well as 92,000 sq ft of consultant workspace.

Upstairs, the Christie extension would deliver ward accommodation. These wards would replace any that are due to come to the end of their operating life, therefore there would not be a net increase in bed spaces or visitor numbers.

The project team includes WSP, Hoare Lea, Hydrock, Mott MacDonald, Tyler Grange, Sandy Brown, and Ridge Partners.
