Description: 1. Replacement of the Barry Building at the Royal Sussex County Hospital. The building was opened in 1828 and contains 200 medical and care of the elderly beds (with circa 5% single rooms), plus the main hospital imaging department and other diagnostic and treatment facilities; 2. The transfer of the regional neurosciences centre from Hurstwood Park (on the Princess Royal Hospital campus which is also part of the Trust). The building is over 70 years old. The project will create the capacity to treat patients from Sussex in Sussex (many currently travel into London); 3. The creation of a Major Trauma Centre for the South East region in line with policy; 4. The expansion of the Sussex Cancer Centre to enable Sussex patients to be treated in Sussex for non-surgical procedures; and 5. Provision of teaching and research facilities for Brighton & Sussex Medical School.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: There were five recommendations made in the 2011 Gateway Review which had been implemented by Year 2 Q2. The Trust had submitted and received Full Planning Consent from the Local Planning Authority. This was a significant achievement given the sensitivity and location of the hospital site (adjacent to five conservation areas and with two Grade II listed structures on the site). The Trust has also refreshed and resubmitted the Outline Business Case to the Strategic Health Authority (the previous OBC approval had been in late 2009). The OBC was reapproved by the SHA at the end of March 2012. The OBC was then submitted to DH. DH forwarded the OBC to HM Treasury in June 2012.
Start date: 2012-05-31
End date: 2021-12-24
Schedule text: There has been about a six month slippage in expected approval of the Outline Business Case which represents the increased scrutiny, challenge and due diligence on projects of this size undertaken by the SHA, Department of Health and HM Treasury to ensure that projects are robust and affordable.
Baseline: £26.80m
Forecast: £54.38m
Variance: 102.91%
Variance text: The budgeted cash flow reflected the resource allocated to the programme at Year 2 Q2. The forecast cash flow anticipated an approval of the OBC in line with the forecast programme and that major spend would be required and allocated once the approval had been secured. The variances in pre 2012/13 and forecast for 2013/14 reflects this (as there are variances in those two periods which balance the forecast increase in 2012/13).
Whole Life Cost: £500.80m
WLCost text: The project is proposed to be funded using Public Capital.
