Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT) responded to NHS England’s ‘Future in Mind’ strategic vision and developed a bespoke whole care pathway for the children, young people and their families, designing and delivering Hopewood, which opened in June 2018.
Through P21+, Kier partnered with NHFT and Gilling Dod Architects to design and build Hopewood. This state of the art facility enables mothers, children and young people to be treated locally. Allowing them to manage their transition back home through the community services on the campus.
Hopewood was designed as a brand new, purpose built-site for children, young people and families as a Centre of Excellence, with access to the most modern and functional clinical facilities including:
- The Lookout Adolescent Unit- 2 x 12 bed wards and 8 bed Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit.
- Pebble Bridge Community CAMHS Centre- offers outpatient services and an Education Centre to create a child, young person and family friendly campus.
- Green Haven- the perinatal services include the 8 bed Margaret Oates Mother and Baby Unit. Mothers can seek help from 13 weeks pregnant as an outpatient and 32 weeks as an inpatient until their baby is 1 year old. Green Haven provides community services as well as inpatient services to provide the best possible care for mothers all under one roof.
By integrating the services all on one site, we could support NHFT to enhance the patient journey by upgrading the existing Pebble Bridge Community CAMHS Centre.
Hopewood includes the first dedicated specialist eating disorders inpatient service and first psychiatric intensive care unit for young people in the East Midlands. The new unit was designed in partnership with the specialist staff, patients and their families to create a modern, warm and welcoming environment.
The first round of the post occupancy evaluation has been undertaken, reviewing 'the old for new' facilities. Early positives include:
- 82% confirmed that Hopewood functions mostly as it was envisaged
- 72% confirmed that the new environment was better for service users and staff.
" We are immensely proud to open Hopewood… This fantastic and incredibly important facility demonstrates our commitment to the mental health and wellbeing of children, young people and perinatal mums. Providing this significant increase in beds means that more young people and women can be treated locally, staying close to their homes, families and communities.
