New Park House Development Executive Summary

New Park House Development Executive Summary   Front Cover of Executive Summary

HM Treasury approved (11/11/21) our Full Business Case (FBC) and released a capital investment of £105.9 million to replace the existing Park House mental health inpatient unit at the North Manchester General Hospital site with a new purpose-built, state-of-the-art building.  

The Executive Summary sets out how the new building will greatly improve patient experience, with spacious single bedrooms each with private en-suite bathrooms, a variety of indoor activity areas, and multiple outside garden spaces. It outlines how the new development will enable specialist inpatient care to be provided more effectively within a safe and pleasant environment for patients, carers, visitors and staff.

Work has already begun to clear the development site, with demolition works due to start imminently, and scheduled for completion by the end of March 2022. Construction work on the new building is expected to start in April 2022, with the new unit anticipated to be built and operational by 2024.
