Tods Murray leads way on £170m Fife hospital deal

Scotland’s Tods Murray has helped its client Consort Healthcare (Fife) reach financial close on the £170m Fife General Hospital and Maternity Services PPP.

Tods Murray picked up the deal through its long-standing relationship with consortium partner Balfour Beatty, which it has advised on five UK hospital ­projects in total.

The other consortium member on this 30-year project is HSBC Infrastructure Investments.

The project involves ­provision of a new wing to Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy, including 11 operating theatres, an emergency care centre, 13 wards, ­surgical and medical assessment units, a maternity unit, a women and children’s unit, day intervention, critical care, coronary care and renal and dialysis ­facilities.

The Fife Hospital project is the largest construction programme in the mid-Scottish region and is due for completion in 2011.
