Cambridge Private Hospital Joint Venture

The challenge

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust wanted to develop a new private hospital, education centre and hotel on the Addenbrookes Hospital site. This scheme formed a key part of the Cambridge 2020 Biomedical Campus vision. The Forum includes: a world class private hospital, a start of the art medical education centre and a high quality hotel. Users of all three elements of the Forum will have a fully integrated and seamless experience. In October 2013, CUH signed contracts with John Laing. CUH will receive an annual income and a share of the profits over the life of the contract. This money will support and enhance patient care at CUH’s two hospitals, Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie.
