Building a Better KGH

Artist impression of what the hospital could look likeAt Kettering General Hospital we’ve started on a major programme to secure new investment in our buildings that enables us to improve our services and benefit our patients and the wider health and social care system.
We have received provisional funding of £46M to build a new Urgent Care Hub to replace our current A&E department and have been selected as one of 21 NHS Trusts eligible to apply for government funding to improve our buildings and estate as part of the Health Infrastructure Plan (known as HIP2)
The first stage of the HIP2 process is for the Trust to submit a Strategic Outline Case for government approval in early spring 2021 and we are working with a team of specialist advisors to help develop the case along with a site master plan.
Find out more by watching our animated video. This is a short four minute animated video which takes you through our plans and demonstrates what we want to do.
We have a very detailed five-stage plan for the long term redevelopment of the hospital site. The Government money of £46M for the Urgent Care Hub and £350M from HIP2 (together giving us £396M) would get us all of phase 1 and part of phase 2. In the next eight years we want to get to phase 3 – which will cost in total about £765M.
That would give us a new A&E, most of our wards renewed and a host of other benefits like new state-of-the-art operating theatres. Of course the current £396m package means we need to another £369M to meet the £765M total cost of getting to phase 3.

As we proceed with the hospital redevelopment there will be key points at which we will be seeking the views and inputs of local people on issues such as wayfinding, car parking and travel plans for example.
