‘Major milestone’ reached at Dulwich Community Hospital redevelopment

Construction work is set to commence at the Dulwich Community Hospital site located in East Dulwich Grove in south London after the project reached financial close on 1 May. The redevelopment plans, approved by Southwark Council in January 2017, comprise a new NHS healthcare centre and new secondary school, on the site of the former Dulwich Community Hospital.

The development of the new healthcare centre will be through the NHS LIFT programme, a public private partnership led by Community Health Partnerships (CHP) working in collaboration with Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group and local LIFT partner, South London Health Partnership.

Eugene Prinsloo, Developments director at Community Health Partnerships, said: “We are delighted to support Southwark CCG in delivering an important part of its out-of-hospital programme and bringing care closer to home for patients. For CHP this is the fourth scheme to reach financial close since we took over the head tenant responsibility of the NHS LIFT estate from Primary Care Trusts in 2013. Working with our local delivery partner, South London Health Partnership, our LIFT public-private partnerships continue be a valuable delivery and funding mechanism for infrastructure in the health sector.”

The new healthcare centre will integrate a range of primary care services, children’s services, some diagnostics, a physiotherapy unit, a renal dialysis unit, community mental health services, and services for patients with long-term conditions.

Malcolm Hines, director of Finance for NHS Bexley, Bromley and Southwark CCGs, said: “This is great news for patients and residents of Southwark. The healthcare centre will play an essential part in the transformation of primary and community health and wellbeing services across south Southwark, and will serve as a fit-for-purpose health hub for the local community.”
