100th hospital opened under scheme by NHS Plan 2000

22nd October 2008

The 100th hospital to be built under the NHS Plan - St Helens Hospital in Merseyside – has admitted its first patients.

Heralded as the biggest hospital building programme in the history of the NHS, Labour announced in 2000 that under the scheme 100 new hospitals would be built by the end of 2010. The building programme aims to replace aging and unsuitable infrastructure through a mixture of Private Finance Initiatives (PFI) and public capital funded schemes. So far 131 hospitals have been built or are under construction.
