Harborough adult mental health team move


Feedback document now published

You can read a summary document outlining feedback to our engagement programme, which closed on 15 July.

The Trust has reviewed the feedback and evaluated responses. While there are a number of respondees who do not approve of the move, most of these views are based on the belief that all service users would be asked to travel to Wigston for future appointments.  This is not the case and the team will continue to provide appointment in the heart of Market Harborough and across the community.

LPT is proceeding with a planned transfer of team base for its Market Harborough community mental health team and the provision of interim town centre clinic and medical outpatient facilities in the town from 25 July 2016. 

 

The proposal

Our Market Harborough adult community mental health team is currently based in leased accommodation at The Welland Centre, on Fernie Road in the town. Weekly clinics are also provided here for some of the 450 people who are receiving support from the team.The property is no longer fit for purpose. The current facilities are not Disability Discrimintation Act compliant and would need major improvement work to provide the standard of quality we want to provide now and in the future.

What is planned

We are proposing to relocate our Market Harborough adult community mental health team to a new permanent administrative base at The Cedars Centre in Wiggston. This will improve the working environment for team members and help us to improve the continuity of care we offer to people who use the service.

Arrangements have been made to provide outpatient and clinic appointments in the heart of Market Harborough. People living nearer Wigston will have the opportunity to be seen at The Cedars Centre if they prefer. Eventually we hope to transfer our clinics to St Luke's Hospital in Market Harborough.

You can read fuller details about the background and rationale behind the move in our engagement document. Printed copies are also available from the Welland Centre and from the Cedars Centre.
