Cambridge Strategic Outline Cases for Cancer, Neurosciences & Children’s services

The challenge

At Addenbrooke’s Hospital, three key service areas - Cancer, Neurosciences and Children’s services each had a strong case for major redevelopment. Their cases were based on their ability to capitalise on potential regional service roles and, in the case of Cancer and Neurosciences, on their position at the forefront of national and international research and development , involving both the University of Cambridge and the biomedical industry. The Trust wanted to compare potential developments through three Strategic Outline Cases (SOCs) in order to gauge the scale of investment required and to inform the development of the Trust’s overall strategy and its approach to developing the Addenbrooke’s site. GE Healthcare Partners were engaged by the Trust to develop the three business cases.
