Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said he is "looking very closely" at the need to rebuild QEH.
There are currently 194 props in 40 different parts of the hospital supporting the roof and James has been campaigning since he was elected to have a new hospital and has raised it regularly with the Prime Minister, Health Secretary, Chancellor of the Exchequer and other ministers.
In an interview with the BBC, Matt Hancock said he knew there are challenges at the hospital and that he could "see the case" for it being among eight new hospitals the government has committed to. Matt Hancock said that he is "talking to the hospital trust and North West Norfolk MP James Wild about its place on that list".
"We have the same problem at the West Suffolk Hospital and at King's Lynn, which is a particular type of building back in the 60s and 70s, which is now coming to the end of its life.
"We're committed to replacing the hospital in West Suffolk, and there are challenges at the hospital in King's Lynn, I know that. We are making the assessment across the country which are the eight most pressing schemes, and then come to a conclusion in the months ahead.
"Well you get to a point especially with a piece of infrastructure that was built back in the 60s and 70s that is coming to the end of its life, where continuing to just keep propping it up gets to the end of its usefulness and you need something completely new. That’s the proposal we have got in West Suffolk to tackle the same problem with a new hospital.
"This is hundreds of millions of pounds to build a new hospital, so it's something that we need to get right, but it's something that's very much on my agenda. I am looking very closely at the case in King's Lynn."
The Health Minister confirmed to James that the criteria and process for the selection of the eight new hospitals will be published in the coming weeks.
