Exciting changes are just around the corner at Springfield University Hospital!
This autumn construction finishes on the new Trinity and Shaftesbury buildings and bright, modern environments open to patients at South West London and St George's.
Reaching this milestone is the result of years of hard work across our communities and in collaboration with service users, with over 400 workshops and consultations informing the design and development along the way.
The buildings will sit at the centre of the new Springfield Village as the site is transformed into a mixed-use community comprising healthcare, housing, a new public square, shops, and a new 32-acre public park.
Bringing our services closer to the communities we serve through this new landscape is key to breaking the enduring stigma around mental ill health and giving mental and physical health parity of esteem.
From November 2022, over 500 staff and patients will move into the new hospital buildings, beginning with Trinity in November and followed by Shaftesbury in early 2023.
The changes happening at Springfield are significant including:
- A new hospital layout
- New roads and address changes from 4 November
- And new appointment locations from 9 November
The Trust is working to ensure people across South West London are aware of the changes as we build up to the Trinity moves over the next four weeks.
We are grateful for any support sharing the news with our communities in the coming months. A Stakeholder Toolkit has been developed to help partners and community organisations in doing this.
- Flyers and factsheets
- Change guidance for healthcare partners
- Social media assets and standard web copy
- Maps of the site and the new Trinity building
You can also find more information and resources for patients and carers on our Springfield Moves page.
Overall, we are thrilled to be reaching this important milestone as we continue our journey to transform mental health services in South West London.We look forward to sharing these fantastic new facilities with you very soon.
