Chase Farm Hospital
The Chase Farm Hospital in North London has world-class facilities for elective (non-emergency) care, diagnostics, outpatients, an urgent care centre, planned elective surgery and post-operative care, an older persons’ assessment unit and rehabilitation facilities. This project included a new energy centre, as well as disposing of part of the site for residential development and a new school.
Currie & Brown’s health team was appointed to write the outline and full business cases (FBC) for the redevelopment of Chase Farm, following the acquisition of the hospital by Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. The team was based on site and integrated with the trust’s team to ensure excellent communication, collaboration, and co-ordination in delivering a high-profile programme, taking the project from inception through to completion in just four years.
The business cases enabled the trust to secure Department of Health and HM Treasury approval of just under £82 million towards the redevelopment, with the shortfall being met by the sale of surplus land and funds invested by the Royal Free London.
Following approval of the FBC in March 2016, Currie & Brown supported the trust by providing contract management services throughout the construction phase of the project. The new hospital opened in summer 2018.
