Sefton, are you on about the massive site on Cranford Street that goes back to the canal?
I assumed this was something different, the new hospital lies between Cranford Street and Grove Lane, recently being cleared and hoardings being erected round the site, but no earth moving as yet.
Pretty sure the site you are referring to is something different, otherwise the hospital would be straddling an important thouroughfare, they have been working on it for over 18 months, but I have no idea what it is in relation to!

I did think it was the other side of the road but assumed with all the movement it would be the other site, interesting then as looks something substantial

Two named to bid £350m Midlands PF2 hospital
8th October 2014
Written by Aaron Morby

Laing O’Rourke has teamed up with Interserve to bid for the Government’s first privately financed hospital under the new PF2 model in the Midlands.

Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust has also selected Carillion as the two other bidders to enter competitive dialogue to build the Midland Metropolitan Hospital.

Balfour was originally picked as a shortlisted bidder but has just dropped out.

Construction of the new hospital is expected to start in 2016 and be completed by 2018-19.


The Midland Metropolitan Hospital will be located in Smethwick, close to the boundary between Sandwell and Birmingham on a derelict industrial estate in Grove Lane.

It is likely to be 8 storeys high with around 670 beds providing capacity for around 107,000 inpatients and 120,000 outpatients each year.



The Trust said its expects that bidders will comply with BIM level 2, but would prefer that BIM level 3 is achieved.


Initial design plans will be submitted in December ahead of shortlisting to two bidders in January. Final bids will then be submitted in August next year ahead of a preferred bidder being announced in September.

Jeez, when did they decide to build a prison instead of a hospital?

The original plans were 1000% better.

Oh christ how ugly is that! Have they cut the budget for this? The women's hospital is dreadful too.

The standard of architecture in a lot of builds is poor. It's a shame half the architects don't have an eye for good design.

I love the idea of the hospital but it is a vile design!!! Looks like an updated version of the NEC.

At the end of the days guys, this building as to be functional to provide the best healthcare, for the nurses and doctors its the facilities and use of space inside that counts.

I have got no concerns about the new design, and some of the visuals inside and out are fine, If you know the area and see what's there now, you'll know what I mean, this is going to be mega for revitalising this part of town.

Just get the earthmovers in and make a start

agree completely, prefer the previous design but money spent on equipment rather than cladding can never be argued with when it comes to hospitals in my opinion

Why do they have an events field with what appears to be a band? It does not give confidence that the architects actually know what a hospital is. Perhaps they DO think its the NEC!

That area desperately needs a decent green space - could be a well used space

I don't know, the QE has a permanent fruit and veg market now, to go along with the Roman ruins, Costa etc. Seems like they're trying to turn hospitals into destinations these days.

I was at the QE visiting for 2 weeks recently and that fruit and veg stall and Costa were so needed and packed from the minute they opened to when they closed. Not sure about the band but facilities like this will be used if they are implemented at the metro hospital.
