Full Steam Ahead For New Midland Met Hospital

IT’S A GO for Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust patients, as the contract to build new hospital the Midland Met is finally signed.

Trust Chairman, Richard Samuda said: “Today we have signed the contract to build and deliver the Midland Met by October 2018 with ‘The Hospital Company’ – a Carillion Joint Venture.

“This is another landmark day for the people of Sandwell and West Birmingham, who now know for certain that their multi-million pound hospital will be built, and at a significantly lower cost than was originally planned. The OBC (outline business case) in 2014 anticipated an annual unitary payment of £27m, however we have closed the contract with an annual unitary payment of under £19.6m.
