Graham has won an £18.3m contract to design and build a cancer centre at Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle, UK, for North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust.

This project was  secured by Graham through the Procure22 Framework.

As per the terms of the contract, Graham will have to construct an 18-bay chemotherapy suite, a three-bed bay for day patients, two LINAC bunkers and a CT scanner suite.

This centre also will have consultation and examination rooms, extra space for support staff, and clinical planning and mould rooms.

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.

“Graham enjoys a strong track record of delivery across the healthcare sector and we look forward to working with partners to help realise a project that will have a really positive impact for those who rely on the specialist care services offered at North Cumbria University Hospital.”

Currently, the project is in the design phase. Construction work is expected to complete in January 2021.
