Improving Mental Health in North Manchester
Mental health services in North Manchester will see large scale investment in modern facilities that GMMH is providing with the opening of an entirely new adult mental health inpatient unit to replace Park House.
£105m in capital funding will be used to replace the current mental health inpatient unit based in Crumpsall on the North Manchester General Hospital site. The current unit, which has 146 acute beds and eight wards, will be completely rebuilt on the hospital site, but in an alternative location to the existing Park House unit. This will allow the new facility to be fully constructed without disturbing current patients and the day-to-day running of services.
GMMH became responsible for the delivery of services at Park House in 2017 and immediately recognised that the unit was a priority for improvement due to its traditional dormitory-style hospital accommodation and set about developing a business case to redevelop the facility. This multi-million pound investment will greatly improve the quality of specialist inpatient care for adults and older people severely affected by mental health problems including schizophrenia, psychosis, depression and dementia.
