At its core, the new Health Infrastructure Plan will see £2.7bn injected into publicly funding six new large hospital projects by 2025.

A further 21 NHS Trusts will get a share of £100m of seed funding they need to develop business cases for 34 upgrade and new-build projects within the next decade.

Fresh investment is on top of the extra £33.9bn a year by 2023 to 2024 that the government is providing to the NHS.

It follows the government’s recent commitment of £1.8bn in capital funding for 20 hospital upgrades and other critical infrastructure works for the NHS.

Chief executive of NHS Providers, Chris Hopson said: “We welcome the government’s intention to fund a further 21 schemes between 2025 and 2030 and the £100m for those organisations to start work on developing those projects, noting that the funding to actually compete those schemes remains to be allocated.

“The NHS has been starved of capital since 2010. There’s a £6bn maintenance backlog, £3bn of it safety critical. It’s not just these six hospitals who have crumbling, outdated, infrastructure – community and mental health trusts, ambulance services and other hospitals across the country have equally pressing needs.”
