Proposals to create new multi-million pound mental health hub at Norton Lea

Residents are invited to an information session to find out more about proposals to build a new mental health hub at Norton Lea on London Road in Boston.

Taking place at St Thomas’ Church Hall on Tuesday 25 October and Tuesday 1 November, both between 2pm and 7pm, residents will be able to speak to the project team and construction experts.

Alan Pattison, programme lead from Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) explains: “This is part of a national programme to improve mental healthcare services.

“We want to improve privacy and dignity standards for people who use our services, so we’d like to create a 19-bed mixed gender inpatient facility for working age adults, which will serve those living to the east and south of Lincolnshire.

“We’ve co-designed the building with our Experts by Experience, healthcare professionals and construction experts, so we’re confident we will create a therapeutic space for those who receive care from us.

“This project is part of a multi-million pound investment to remove the outdated dormitory style accommodation, which we currently have at Pilgrim Hospital. We hope by building at Norton Lea, we will also be able to co-locate other mental health support services, making it a real support hub for the people of Boston.”

If you are unable to attend the events, but would like to share feedback, please send us your thoughts via https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YK8MZZ9
