Many of our buildings are no longer fit for 21st century mental healthcare. Our new facilities will provide better purpose-designed facilities for patients' care and recovery and for our staff. We will develop our Lambeth hospital site along with Mapother House, Michael Rutter Centre and the Professorial buildings on the Maudsley site, as new housing.
This will help meet the need for more local homes. More than half of the developments will be affordable housing.
Our proposals, which are now with Lambeth Council, include over 500 much needed new homes 50 per cent of which will be affordable, and a new community space. These new homes will help those on Lambeth Council’s waiting lists while providing investment in improved mental health services. It will help us fund our major investments in new, better mental healthcare facilities and services.
The redeveloped Douglas Bennett Housewill house most of the Lambeth Hospital wards and services, following extensive consultations with staff, commissioners and local people. CAMHS inpatient and outpatient services will move into the new Pears Maudsley Centre for Children and Young People. Ongoing discussions with service users, staff and partner organisations will support the moves, which are expected to take place in 2023.
