Queen's Centre for Oncology and Haematology

Queen's Centre for Oncology and Haematology

Castle Hill Hospital

Cottingham, Hull

Subtly and expertly designed by HLM Architects, this ecologically sensitive site has been transformed by Shepherd Construction Ltd to harness the surrounding countryside in providing a tranquil setting for patients undergoing their cancer treatment and care.

Benefitting from intimate walled gardens, glazed walkways and nine courtyards, almost all 800 rooms overlook gardens or landscaping.

The £70 million PFI development has become a UK Centre of Excellence, and has used an innovative approach to overcome the problem of unsightly concrete encased Linac treatment bunkers, by burying them deep into the surrounding sloping site, reducing the amount of concrete used and preserving the natural setting.
