Estate Modernisation

Estates Modernisation Programme - New Hospitals

Our mental health services in south west London are being transformed to provide better care, closer to home.

At South West London and St. George’s Mental Health Trust, we have a long history of innovation that has helped redefine the mental health landscape in the UK.

Our Estate Modernisation Programme (EMP) will continue that innovation by building state-of-the-art inpatient health care facilities and committing to providing community care closer to home.

Building a sustainable future

Most of our existing inpatient facilities were not designed with today’s needs in mind and we still care for some patients in buildings over 150 years old. These do not provide a supportive environment for our staff, our patients or our carers.

Our state-of-the-art hospitals will provide modern inpatient facilities that are fit for purpose; giving people the best chance to recover in the best environment. New facilities will support staff to deliver outstanding care and will be sustainable for the NHS for generations to come.

Committing to care, creating communities

Our Estate Modernisation Programme will be entirely self-funded by the sale of surplus land no longer needed for our services. Our investment will deliver:

  • Two state-of-the-art hospital buildings at Springfield University Hospital and Tolworth Hospital in Kingston and refurbished mental health facilities in Richmond, Barnes and Twickenham – delivering the best care for our patients
  • A 32 acre public park in Tooting – providing excellent outdoor for our community
  • Extensive community healthcare – treating people closer to their families and their home
  • Brand new homes at our Springfield University Hospital site – providing hundreds of homes for families
  • A new school – investing in our children’s future
  • Money for local transport facilities – boosting transport links for residents


We are now preparing our Springfield site ready to begin construction on our state-of-the-art facilities in Summer 2019. You can keep up to date on all the latest developments below, or join our mailing list by emailing

At Springfield, contractors will move on site in December 2018 to conduct some preliminary works, erect hoarding and undertake surveys. To find out about the history of the programme, planning applications and next steps please visit STEPs website:
