Planning permission has been granted to build Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

The new specialist cancer research hospital will be the first of its kind for the East of England, and will transform the lives of the millions of people diagnosed with cancer. It will bring together under one roof NHS staff from Addenbrooke’s Hospital and world-leading scientists from the University of Cambridge and its Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre.

Dr Hugo Ford, Director of Cancer Services at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said,

“We’re continuing to work closely with our partners and the local planning authority to ensure we balance the water safety requirements of a new hospital development, against the wider water resource challenges, both of which are fundamental for the future health and wellbeing of our patients, staff and community.”

Pre-construction works are set to begin this summer to start preparing the site for full construction works in 2025.
