Name our £20m mental health unit
Aincluding a gym. There will also be a café, a family visiting room, “sacred” space, suite of offices and outpatient services. Mersey Care’s chief executive, Joe Rafferty, said: “People in our care deserve the best standards of accommodation and therapeutic environments within the resources we have.”
The new hospital will combine local mental health inpatient care and some related community services on the site of the former Southport General Infirmary, near the former Christiana Hartley mat e r n i t y unit, and continues a long tradition of health services there.
The new building is behind the mental health facility, the Boothroyd Unit, which it will replace along with the nearby Hesketh Centre.
Southport Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust is keen to hear, from members of the community, their ideas to help name the hospital and its wards.
Naming suggestion forms can also be picked up and left at The Life Rooms Southport, or email ideas before Monday, September 10 to Southport.Project@merseycare.nhs.uk
