£16 million NHS agreement for Townlands
Published 16/05/14



THE developer who will transform Henley’s Townlands Hospital into a state-of-the-art “health campus” has finalised the financial deal.

Amber Solutions for Care has secured a £16 million agreement with NHS Property Services to redevelop the 2.36 hectare site.

The company will upgrade and maintain the hospital site in partnership with Vinci Construction.

The site will include a 64-bed care home, which will be owned and operated by Oxfordshire Country Council and a care provider that hasn’t yet been confirmed.

This will replace the Chilterns End care home which is run by the Orders of St John Care Trust.

There will also be the new Sue Ryder hospice, which will move from Nettlebed, and 12 key worker homes Mike Leto, Amber’s project director, said: “We are delighted to help secure the future for Townlands Community Hospital in providing a higher quality healthcare facility for the residents of Henley. This is an exciting stage in the innovation of Amber’s financing solutions for healthcare infrastructure, maximising the potential of NHS real estate by upgrading existing services or creating additional care facilities.

“We look forward to delivering the same value-for-money estate solution to other NHS organisations across the UK.”

The developer said costs related to the delivery of the new hospital had been offset with its use of land receipts associated with the project.

James Wakeham, south regional director at NHS Property Services, said: “It is extremely pleasing to deliver this milestone achievement to the people and patients of Henley and to signal that the redevelopment of the site can now get underway.

“We will continue to work closely with all partners involved to ensure that the hospital is delivered on time, to specification, and is able to deliver first-class healthcare for the local community.”

The hospital will remain operational throughout the two-year construction period with work scheduled to start this month.
