Stepping forward with plans for a new Ambulatory Care and Diagnostics Centre (ACAD) at Heartlands Hospital

For the past 18 months, clinical and operational teams from across Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust (HEFT) have been working on the designs and planning arrangements for a new, four-storey facility on the Heartlands site which will transform our current service provision for patients.

About the proposed design

The multi-million building will offer world-class facilities and house a wide range of health services, including outpatients, endoscopy and diagnostic services, which will care for hundreds of thousands of patients each year.
