The hospital is currently developing a flagship cancer treatment facility

Queen Mary’s Hospital will receive nearly £22million worth of investment to improve a range of its services.

The investment comes from Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, and will help support the next stage of development at the Sidcup site, to continue the ongoing works.

A new building for adults with learning disabilities as well as an out-patient facility will be built.

It is also expected to offer an urgent care centre, dispensary and phlebotomy services.

On the first floor will be out-patients and women’s services, Musculoskeletal (MSK) therapies and cardiology services.

The hospital is already undergoing works to build a flagship cancer treatment facility to stop people having to travel further into the capital to receive treatment.

Ben Travis, acting chief executive, said: “This is another exciting step forward in us achieving our vision to see Queen Mary’s Hospital developed into a vibrant centre which can provide vital local health services for local communities.”
