完成對有倒閉風險的醫院的審查

政府已經完成了對幾家瀕臨倒閉的醫院的未來的審查。

它涉及到國家醫療服務系統的建築,這些建築使用了加固的蒸壓加氣混凝土,這些建築在建造時就已經惡化了。

在20世紀60年代和80年代之間,它們被用於NHS建築和學校的屋頂、地板和牆壁,其預期壽命為30年。

本財政年度,超過1億英鎊被用於受影響場所的安全措施。

正如《星期日泰晤士報》首次報道的那樣,衛生和社會保健部(DHSC)委託一家建築公司評估風險最大的建築物。

該審查將被保密,但考察了這些醫院的狀況,以及它們是否需要完全重建。

2020年,首相宣布,作為價值37億英鎊的一攬子計劃的一部分,將在2030年前建造40家醫院,另有8個計劃被邀請投標,以獲得未來的資金。

DHSC說,位於Bury St Edmunds的West Suffolk醫院和位於諾福克郡Gorleston的James Paget醫院都有RAAC,但屬於新醫院計劃的一部分,所以不在審查之列。

NHS Providers的臨時首席執行官Cordery先生說,政府需要資金來 "解決NHS所面臨的驚人的維修積壓問題"。

"他說:"至關重要的是,信託機構能夠獲得他們所需的資金,以更換RAAC木板和解決其他關鍵的基礎設施風險,以確保病人和員工的安全不受影響。


The government has completed a review into the future of several hospitals which are in danger of collapse.

It concerns NHS buildings which have used reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete that had deteriorated since the sites were constructed.

Between the 1960s and 1980s they were used in roofs, floors and walls of NHS buildings and schools and had an expected lifespan of 30 years.

More than £100m was being spent this financial year on safety measures across the affected sites.

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) commissioned a construction company to assess the buildings most at risk, as first reported in the Sunday Times.

The review will be kept confidential but looked at the state of these hospitals and whether they needed to be fully rebuilt.

In 2020, the prime minister announced that 40 hospitals would be built by 2030 as part of a package worth £3.7bn, with a further eight schemes invited to bid for future funding.

West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds and James Paget in Gorleston, Norfolk, both have RAAC but are part of the new hospital programme so were not in the review, the DHSC said.

Mr Cordery, the interim chief executive of NHS Providers said money from the government was needed "to tackle the alarming maintenance backlog" the NHS was facing.

"It is vital trusts get access to the capital they need to replace RAAC planks and address other critical infrastructure risks to ensure patient and staff safety is not compromised," he said.
