Plans lodged for Christie Hospital expansion

The Christie NHS Foundation Trust wants to build a 7,000 sq ft extension on its cancer treatment centre in Manchester.

Deloitte submitted the proposals for the four-storey development at the southern portion of the Christie Hospital off Oak Road in Withington.

Gilling Dod Architects has drawn up the plans which propose two new staircases and two new bed lifts. These are “required to improve circulation and enable the applicant to better utilise its available theatre capacity”, according to Deloitte.

It is hoped that the extension would improve staff and patient circulation, and decrease patients’ waiting times.

The proposals would support future internal developments, allowing two additional wards to be built to provide the hospital with 19 new beds.

The site currently comprises clinical and non-clinical facilities, including temporary site cabins that would be removed prior to work starting.

Plans also include landscaping along Oak Road to improve the site’s external appearance.

AJP is the structural and civil engineer for the project, CAD21 is the mechanical engineer. Arcadis is the development’s quantity surveyor.

Manchester City Council’s reference number for the application is 136095/FO/2023.

The Christie is also working alongside the University of Manchester and Cancer Research UK on its Paterson building, due to complete this spring.
