The government has given the green light to the £242m redevelopment of Broadmoor Hospital.

The Department of Health said it had approved West London Mental Health NHS Trust’s £242m redevelopment plans for Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire and a £60m medium secure unit (MSU) at St Bernard’s Hospital in Ealing.

As Building revealed in July, Kier won the £115m job to redevelop Broadmoor.

The scheme involves the replacement of outdated Victorian buildings with new purpose-built hospitals, with the construction of 10 new wards in addition to six existing ones.

The two-year redevelopment programme at St Bernard’s Hospital in Ealing involves the construction of a new 80-bed medium secure unit.
