Matthew Tulley, Director of Re-development at Imperial Healthcare NHS Trust, will be speaking at Future Cities Forum's arts and sciences discussion this May at Lambeth Palace Library.
The forum will look at the development of science innovation campuses and hospital development, what this means for the community, the wider economy and the attraction and retention of talent. Cultural venues such as the new Lambeth Palace Library building with its' expanded facilities and viewing tower, are important to the visitor economy, the cultural infrastructure of the city, helping in the talent attraction of international science and medical specialists wanting to build their careers in the Capital.
Imperial Healthcare NHS Trust appointed Matthew Tulley as Director of Redevelopment, part of the Trust's executive management team in 2020. The appointment came at an important time for the Trust’s redevelopment ambitions, with proposed rebuilds and major refurbishments for the St Mary’s, Charing Cross and Hammersmith hospital sites included in the Government’s Health Infrastructure Plan announced in September 2019. Matthew leads on the Trust’s strategic redevelopment vision and how it translates that vision into detailed plans, working closely with staff, patients, partners and local communities.
Matthew was the redevelopment director at Barts Health NHS Trust from 2006 to 2012, leading the £1.2bn development of the Barts and the Royal London hospitals, currently the largest new hospitals development in the UK. He then took up a leading role at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust where he oversaw the completion of phases 2 and 3 of its redevelopment programme and business case approval of phase 4. He was also responsible for the Trusts’ sustainability and arts programmes. Matthew started his career at the National Audit Office before spending several years at Partnerships UK, the Treasury body specialising in the development and procurement of major projects.
Matthew Tulley commented - at the time of his appointment:
“I’m delighted to be joining Imperial College Healthcare at such an exciting time. In partnership with patients, staff are continuing to build on the Trust’s long legacy of fantastic care and innovation and they rightly all want buildings to match. My job will be to help us create an estate that supports genuinely joined-up care, promotes health and wellbeing and is a real asset to the local environment, drawing on all of the best insights into digital, design and sustainability.”
