What happens next?
We are asking for a once in a lifetime investment in Torbay and South Devon. This means that we need to make a strong case for the investment. As the investment will come from public monies, there is a formal process we need to follow which includes three set stages before we are able to formally secure the funding.
- Strategic Outline Case will provide a broad overview of the project and indicative costs/design of the new systems and hospital infrastructure.
- Outline Business Case this element of the process provides all the detail of the preferred option in terms of cost, design and workforce implications.
- Full Business Case the final stage will provide the final tendered costs of the project and once approved will allow for construction / system implementation to commence.
- Construction – Once the Full Business Case is approved and the investment secured, we anticipate that construction will take place until 2030.
