Trinity, Shaftesbury and Springfield Village
Through our Integrated Programme we are investing to modernise mental health services in South West London - starting at Springfield Hospital in Wandsworth.
Following government approval, announced in January 2020, construction progressed at pace on the development of two new mental health facilities at Springfield, with works finishing in late 2022 and 2023.
Named Trinity and Shaftesbury, the facilities sit at the heart of a ‘Springfield Village’ as we develop a new mixed-used community combining healthcare and residential neighbourhoods in a parkland setting.
The Trust received approval for its Full Business Case for the £150million development of Trinity and Shaftesbury in 2019 following extensive engagement with the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS Improvement, NHS England and Her Majesty’s Treasury.
Construction began in January 2020 and continued throughout the pandemic, with contractors navigating the challenges successfully to complete construction on time.
Prior to this, the design of our new facilities and the wider development was informed by over 400 meetings, seminars and workshops with our service users and their carers, nurses, doctors and other clinical experts, as well as consultations with the local community.
Trinity and Shaftesbury
Works on the new Trinity building finished in on time and in budget in December 2022, with nearly 500 staff and patients from across 30 of the Trust's teams moving in from late autumn.
The new facilities have been designed to provide high quality inpatient services that deliver modern mental healthcare; giving people the best chance to recover in the best environment, and supporting our staff to deliver the outstanding care our service users deserve from us.
As part of the innovative design, the facilities feature 20 world-class artworks created in partnership with arts and mental health charity Hospital Rooms – the first time an art project of this scale has been undertaken in the NHS.
Over 2022, leading artists hosted more than 120 workshops with the Trust’s service users, patients, carers and staff to help shape specially commissioned artworks, which are designed to transform how hospital wards are experienced by patients and service users.
We now look ahead Shaftesbury building's move in 2023 as the Trust celebrates another major milstone in its timeline for transforming mental health services in South West London.
Springfield Village: A new mixed-used community
Trinity and Shaftebsury are part of a wider transformation at Springfield Hospital which will see mental health facilities integrated as part of new 'Springfield Village'.
This new stigma-breaking landscape includes the creation of more than 800 new homes, a new public square, shops and a 32-acre public park.
The full programme is being delivered through the Trust’s Estate Modernisation Programme (EMP) alongside our delivery partners, STEP, a 50/50 partnership with Sir Robert McAlpine Capital Ventures Ltd and Kajima Partnership. The residential elements are being delivered by City & Country (resdeintial coversions of listed buildings), London Square and Barratt London (new homes).
The redevelopment at Springfield represents major innovation and investment in our local community and will take until approxiamtely 2026 to complete.
In summary, the programme is bringing forward a range of benefits to the people who use our services, their carers and the local community, including:
- A new ‘Springfield Village’ providing:
- Two state-of-the-art mental health buildings – delivering best-in-class facilities
- A 32-acre public park in Tooting – providing excellent outdoor space for our community
