Earlier this year the Trust ran a community competition to name our new forensic and non-forensic buildings with a judging panel selecting the top entries.
The new facilities are part of a major programme of investment and innovation supporting the improvement of mental health services in South West London. They will be home to a number of different services including CAMHS, Eating Disorders and our National Deaf Services, and will provide our patients with best environment in which to recover.
The winning entries
A huge thank you to everyone who took part in the competition. We received a wide range of poignant and interesting suggestions, and our judges were greatly impressed by the creativity of some of the ideas.
We are delighted to announce that the winning nomination for our new forensic building is... ‘Shaftesbury Building’!
Our panel loved this entry which continues from the name of the current building for our forensic services. We felt that this would help service users continue to navigate the new estate layout easily and provide a seamless link from the old to new look Springfield Hospital.
For our non-forensic building, our judges were split between two choices, ‘Tota', the Anglo-Saxon name for Tooting, which has clear links to the location of Springfield Hospital, and ‘Trinity’. Tooting Bec Station was originally named ‘Trinity Road Station’, which again has close links to the Trust geographically.
After polling our community.. 'Trinity' has come out on top with 57% of the public vote!
Thank you gain to everyone who entered and congratulations to the winners who submitted these entries - we will be in touch with you in due course to arrange a prize tour of the facilities, which are scheduled to open in 2022.
