SWLSTG awarded £11 million government funding for Barnes Hospital re-development
South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust (SWLSTG) has been awarded £11 million in funding to support the redevelopment of a healthcare facility at the Barnes Hospital site as part of an announcement made in the Autumn budget
This funding will support the delivery of a new healthcare facility to provide mental health outpatient services, which creates great opportunities for delivering services closer to people’s homes.
The current Barnes site has not been used for inpatient services since 2013 and is not suitable for delivering modern mental health services. This new multi-million pound healthcare centre will ensure patients receive care in the best environment, closer to their home whilst adding physical outpatient healthcare services for local residents.
SWLSTG Chief Executive David Bradley said:
“We are pleased the Department of Health have awarded our Trust these much needed funds to re-develop a new health facility at the old Barnes Hospital site.
“This investment will mean that our patients receive the best local care in the most supportive environment, whilst also providing additional healthcare services for the local Barnes community.
As the leading provider of mental health services in south west London we are committed to providing care closer to people’s homes and this much needed money will greatly support our vision to support care closer to the heart of the communities we serve.’
