Why don’t you simply re-build on the existing Sandwell Hospital site?

This answer is very similar to that for Question 12, which discusses the City Hospital site, Sandwell Hospital is very crowded and we would not be able to provide services on the site while demolishing and re-building. If we were to re-build on the Sandwell Hospital site, we would have to move all our wards and services around while the demolition and re-building programme took place. Moving theatres, wards and clinics around would be very disruptive and expensive. Building work for the new hospital would also take much longer. Finally, because the new hospital will serve people who currently use both City and Sandwell Hospitals, it needs to be accessible to people from the whole catchment area. We have worked out that moving the site towards Smethwick would mean the hospital was central for all who need to use it.
