REPLACEMENT plans for the redevelopment of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust will be submitted in the summer.
Rob Hurd, chief executive of the specialist neuro-musculoskeletal hospital in Brockley Hill, Stanmore, known as RNOH, said a new masterplan will supercede the existing permissions to overhaul the buildings.
All the revised documentation for the multi-million privately-funded project will be lodged with Harrow Council this summer with a view to work starting in April 2016 if the scheme is approved by councillors.
Mr Hurd said: “We are keen to ensure that we consult widely with our key stakeholders and encourage as many people as possible to attend a public exhibition to find out more about the proposals."
The two-day public exhibition will be held in the hospital's Sir Herbert Seddon Teaching Centre on Friday April 20 from 3pm to 7pm and on Saturday April 21 from 10am to 2pm.
The first phase of original £61million rebuild was expected to begin in 2013 to provide a new 159-bed in-patient accommodation and an imaging department to replace Second World War-era temporary buildings that have long exhausted their lifespan.
It has always been the case that excess land will be sold for housing to part subsidize the revamp while both The Duke of York and his daughter Princess Eugenie visited the hospital to support its redevelopment appeal that will be launched on April 26 to attract another £15million in donations over the next five years.
