GRAHAM TO BUILD NEW CANCER CENTRE IN CARLISLE

Graham has been awarded an £18.3m contract to design and construct a new cancer centre at Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle. North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust brought Graham on board through the Procure22 construction framework.

Services to be delivered in the new facility will include radiotherapy, day-case chemotherapy, oncology late phase clinical trials, and oncology outpatient clinics. Therefore Graham will build and 18-bay chemotherapy suite, a three-bed bay for day patients, two LINAC bunkers for X-ray machines and a CT (computerised tomography) scanner suite.

There will also be consultation and examination rooms, clinical planning and mould rooms and additional space for support staff.

The project is currently in the design phase, with work expected to complete in January 2021.

Graham healthcare director Keith Hayes said: “The project to create a new cancer centre at Cumberland Infirmary will play a vital role in improving facilities and services available to clinicians, patients and families across the region. It’s a crucial piece of work, and a positive step towards realising the NHS England Specialised Commissioners’ strategy for delivering sustainable models for cancer services in Cumbria”.
