NHS hospital sites across the United Kingdom are subject to constant evolution to meet the healthcare needs of the population and these hospital estates require almost continuous renewal to update aging facilities and expansion to meet a wider scope of healthcare services.

The demands on the construction sector from the NHS has increased further with the Government’s New Hospital Programme, a commitment to build 40 new hospitals in England by 2030 with capital funding of £3.7 billion up to March 2025, with additional finds to follow for the following five years1. The complexity and scale of these construction projects requires careful consideration of current insurance market conditions.
