Plans by Surrey & Borders Partnership to relocate their community services in North West Surrey to their latest community hub building, Unither House in Chertsey, are progressing well. Services will be established there during the first week in December.
Unither House will be the main office base and clinic space for S&BP services supporting people in Runnymede and Spelthorne. The Trust is also arranging additional clinic rooms in Staines and Ashford for local people who want their appointments close to home.
This is the latest development in a wider plan to relocate community mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages to a series of Community Hubs across Surrey’s boroughs and in North East Hampshire. Surrey & Borders Partnership is doing this to:
- Create more modern, welcoming environments and replace buildings which are no longer fit for purpose due to their poor condition, layout or facilities
- Increase accessibility by public transport and for those with additional needs
- Improve people’s experience of services
- Encourage better communications and more joined-up working by locating teams together
- Make services provision more affordable – and sustainable – by making better use of space and being able to share some office functions amongst teams.
Unither House in Chertsey is the latest Hub and teams from St Peter’ Hospital site and other locations across North West Surrey will be co-locating in this much improved town centre accommodation. Further details are available at www.sabp.nhs.uk.
Details of the new Hub are: Unither House, Curfew Bell Road, Chertsey, Surrey, KT16 9FG. The telephone number for Reception is 01932 587000.
