Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Haematology Centre Business Case

Client: Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership

The University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust was seeking Local Growth Fund (LGF) investment for the expansion of the Birmingham Centre for Clinical Haematology (BCCH). The expansion project was designed to create new capacity for the BCCH's haemato-oncology programme, permitting out-patient delivery of stem cell transplants and complex haemato-oncology care, and increase the scale and breadth of its clinical trial capacity. The project also represented an opportunity to strengthen Birmingham's wider life sciences cluster.

SQW was commissioned by Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership to produce a business case application to seek approval for circa £2.4 million of LGF grant resource. The work included a desk-based review, stakeholder discussions, financial and economic impact modelling and cost-benefit analysis.
