All business cases are required to follow the proper processes for effective appraisal including ensuring value for money. The scheme for Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust is currently at Outline Business Case stage. Once approved the trust will begin work on its Full Business Case.

Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust has already received £20.5 million in funding for its new hospital scheme. The scheme is part of the Pathfinder cohort, which are the first of the larger and more complex schemes to be taken forward aligned, with the national programme approach.
