Carter Jonas was instructed by the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in 2020 to prepare and submit a full planning application for the erection of a new, 59,800 sq. ft., 5-storey Adult Intensive Care Unit following a requirement identified by the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West ICS for increased critical care capacity to cover the Southeast region. 

Given demand pressures, construction work needed to commence at speed and prior to the grant of planning permission. This process therefore required collaboration between Carter Jonas, the NHS Trust and Oxford City Council to ensure that Members of the Planning Adult Intensive Care Unit, John Radcliffe Hospital Oxford Committee and senior Planning Officers were fully appraised and kept updated on the initial build phases whilst the planning application was being considered. Ultimately, this close working partnership resulted in the planning application being fast-tracked by Officers at Oxford City Council and placed before the East Area Planning Committee. The Committee resolved to grant approval in August 2021. 

Achieving the delivery of the new facility in such a short space of time was only possible with the successful collaboration between Carter Jonas, the Applicant and the City Council and the proactive way in which all parties engaged through the planning application process.
