A £157m BDP-designed specialist cancer hospital in Liverpool to be built by Laing O’Rourke has been given the planning green light.

The new 110-bed hospital will be built next to Royal Liverpool Hosptial for the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust.

Construction is expected to start later this year, with the hospital opening by the end of 2019.
