• Health - taking the legacy forward


    Inequalities in health, and mental health in particular, are significant in the borough. There is a strong local feeling that more NHS health services should be provided on the St Ann’s site, reflected in our consultation and survey.


    We want health and well-being to be a core principle of our plans. We plan to advocate for the commissioning of NHS services that meet the objectively assessed health needs of local residents that are integrated into the fabric of the redevelopment. We also wish to ensure that any development is sympathetic to the needs of the patients and staff of the hospital.


    We secured funding to complete an initial feasibility study and incorporate as a Community Benefit Society. We will research the feasibility of working in partnership with a mental health supported housing provider who will integrate their services into the overall design for the site.
