Princess of Wales Redevelopment 

To meet the needs of a growing and ageing population, we submitted a planning application on behalf of local NHS and social care partners to modernise services and facilities on this much loved hospital site in Ely.  Outline planning permission was granted in 2021. 

This collaboration with NHS and social care partners is a three year redevelopment programme to: 

  • build brand new, modern  premises to replace out-dated facilities (retaining the day surgery unit)
  • deliver more day surgery, outpatient, diagnostic and urgent care services, closer to people’s homes (all current services will remain on the hospital site)
  • provide more joined-up care across health and social care services, including for frail elderly people and those living with long term conditions
  • create more physical space to meet the needs of a growing population, reducing the need for people to travel to Cambridge for some services
  • build a new car park(no more than 4 levels) to address the lack of parking on site
  • harness digital technology to deliver modern healthcare including virtual consultations
