A CONSORTIUM headed by Trafalgar House is the preferred bidder for the latest phase of the 80 million Queen Elizabeth Hospital at Woolwich in south-east

London.

The Greenwich Healthcare Trust scheme will be built on the 10 ha site of the former Military Hospital, which was recently bought by the trust.

The project is let as a design and construction contract under the terms of the governments Private Finance Initiative and the concession will run for 25 years.

The job includes a 640-bed ward block, accident and emergency unit, operating theatres and residential blocks.

Work is due for completion by 1998, when the hospital, in Stadium Road, will replace the acute services at Greenwich District Hospital and the Memorial Hospital.

Last month, Trafalgar was named as preferred bidder for a 50 million deal to redevelop the Hereford County Hospital.
