An advertisement has been placed in theOfficial Journal of the European Union inviting private sector partnership in the development of a new Worcester district general hospital. I understand that Worcester Royal Infirmary national health service trust is currently having preliminary discussions with a number of interested parties and an intended target date of the year 2000 has been set for completion of the development.
