Client: Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust (RFL) Capital & Estates
Chase Farm Hospital’s redevelopment was achieved at an unprecedented speed for a scheme this complex and large within the NHS.
Typically, schemes like this take over 10 years to deliver. Delivering a scheme with a construction value of £130m+ in less than 4 years is unprecedented. It demonstrates what is possible with strong leadership and clear direction, true collaborative working across disciplines and more objective approaches to risk management.
The scheme was delivered on time and within budget.
The Duke of York opened the new Chase Farm Hospital (CFH) on 23 May 2019. The hospital is one of the most digitally advanced hospitals in the country and opened to patients last year.
"It is a huge pleasure to be here today, particularly as I am Patron of the Royal Free London, and I am amazed at the speed at which this new hospital has been built.
Hospitals are about increasing the likelihood of better patient outcomes and patient healthcare, and today I have been around this new hospital, met some of your staff, and it is clear that that intent is being delivered.”
