Velindre University NHS Trust is seeking tender proposals for the New Velindre Cancer Centre project which will be situated at Whitchurch, North Cardiff. It is proposed by the contracting authority to procure the estimated £562,000 project through the Welsh Government’s Mutual Investment Model (“MIM”) which is a specific model for procuring PPPs in Wales.
The new cancer centre facility which is about 32,000 m² is to be designed, constructed, financed and maintained by an operator who will be awarded the contract. It will have the capacity for 8,500 new patients and 160,000 patient appointments a year – up from the current levels by two thousand and 20,000. It’s part of a plan to increase capacity across South East Wales.
The new Velindre Cancer Centre project director, David Powel, said, “The 60 year-old Velindre Cancer Centre does not have the facilities or space to meet this future challenge. So, we want to replace it with a new one. The new centre will treat more patients and help more people live longer with cancer. It will also further support international research and development aiming to make Wales a leader in cancer treatment.”
The deadline for applications: 21 June, 2021
