Issue details

Blue Mountain Community and Health Care Hub

To provide an update on the progress of the Blue Mountain Community and Health Care Hub scheme and the supporting financial summary. The project is in partnership with the Frimley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). Planning Permission was granted in July 2021. A decision is required to proceed to the next stage of the project, which includes commencing the main works and agreeing the provider options for the operation of the community centre. The CCG is due to submit the full business case to the NHS in September 2021 to secure funding for the health provision; the full business case requires evidence of planning permission along with a finalised scheme cost (based on the contractor’s proposal). A procurement plan tailored to the specific requirements of this project was approved by the Executive in December 2019.
