Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust are planning to redevelop their mental health facilities
Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust are coming to our 12 September meeting to explain their plans to redevelop their community and impatient facilities.
- They plan to sell off some of the land at the St Pancras Hospital site.
- They will use the revenue to move the impatient beds from St Pancras, building new ones on a site next to Highgate Mental Health Centre.
- They will also invest in their community facilities, building two new community hubs.
- They will bring their academics together on a single site at St Pancras.
(The proposal detailed above is the preferred option. The Trust have also put forward two alternative proposals: as above but building the new beds on a site at St Ann's Hospital in Tottenham; or repairing and maintaining their current buildings and not selling off any land.)
They have met with various service users and carer groups over the spring and early summer. Now they would like to share their plans with Healthwatch. The Trust is particularly keen for feedback on what should go into the community hubs they propose to build.
Should their business case be approved by the NHS, a full, formal public consultation will follow. No building work will start before 2020.
Come along to our steering group meeting to find out more, ask questions and have your say.
