Stepping forward with plans for a new Ambulatory Care and Diagnostics Centre (ACAD) at Heartlands Hospital

The Trust has been granted planning permission by Birmingham City Council for a new, four-storey (plus rooftop plantroom) facility on the Heartlands site which will transform our current service provision for patients.

About the proposed design

The multi-million building will offer world-class facilities and house a wide range of health services, including outpatients, endoscopy and imaging, which will care for hundreds of thousands of patients each year. The plans, which were given planning permission with conditions, are that the proposed new building will be located next to the Main Entrance with entry to the new building for patients planned to be through the main hospital entrance, turning right into ACAD.

What happens next?

Our next steps include aiming to secure the full investment required from NHS Improvement later this year with the view to begin construction later this year and to have the facility open by 2020.
