Hampshire Together has the opportunity to deliver a new hospital to serve the people of north and mid Hampshire – but at this stage, no decisions have been taken and no options generated.

It is no secret that some of our buildings – while much loved – are now approaching the end of their usable lives. This programme gives us the opportunity to build a new hospital, complementing existing services and allowing us to embrace new ideas and innovations – all with our patients at the heart of our thinking.

The programme will include our whole local NHS – from GPs to mental health services, community care to acute hospital provision; as well as our colleagues in social care and the wider voluntary sector.

As such, we are working together as one, with the aim of delivering fully joined-up care; from hospital to home and everything in between.

We aim to be able to release a summary of our findings so far in the coming months, with formal public consultation on a number of options following at the earliest opportunity. This may include a preferred way forward which we think is the best of them.

After this process has been concluded and fully assessed we will announce our decision as soon as possible.
