The Queen’s Centre for Oncology & Haematology in Hull is a UK Centre of Excellence for the treatment of patients with cancer and blood disorders. In a catchment area that encompasses around 1.2 million people. The £45m scheme was procured under the Government’s Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and was delivered within a 2.5 year period.
