Project Overview

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust provides a range of acute services and community health services to residents and visitors to Blackpool and the surrounding area. The proposed development is an extension to the Emergency Department which would provide 14 critical care beds and hospital staff accommodation, and would require the demolition of an old theatre block.

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust were working on an outline business case and wished to present the social and economic impact of potential options. Social Profit Calculator were contracted to calculate the impact of these options in the construction phase and the value created through the asset post construction.

The results have been used for an options appraisal as part of an outline business case and were communicated to Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
