Construction Starts for Two New Mental Health Hospitals in UK
Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has started construction of new mental health hospital facilities in Derby and Chesterfield, UK.
The new facilities in Derby and Chesterfield will feature 54 single, en-suite rooms, creating a much improved environment for patients. These new rooms will provide much needed safety, privacy, and dignity to those staying in them. Additionally, the facilities will also feature green areas, therapy spaces, and temperature-controlled rooms, ensuring that patients can remain comfortable and safe during their stay.
These improved facilities will replace the current dormitory accommodation, providing a much more modern and comfortable setting for the residents. The improved environment will add to the comfort of the patients and help them feel safer, allowing them to focus on their recovery.
NHS is also launching a new 14-bed psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) at Kingsway Hospital in Derby. This is an important development for Derbyshire, as the county currently lacks a PICU and people needing this level of support are forced to travel to other counties to access an appropriate bed.
The projects are set to complete in 2024 for the acute facilities and 2025 for the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit.
