Whipps Cross Hospital would be one of six hospitals in England according to the government announcement last September. This would benefit from £2.7bn of funding over the next five years.  With the help of local health and care partner organizations, and local government partners; Barts Health has developed a vision for the future of Whipps Cross Hospital.
