Stage 3 - Developing our plans
We agreed plans for improving health services in and around Dulwich at our Governing Body meeting held on 21 September 2013. This decision was informed by the outcome of our public consultation.
Between 2015 and 2016, we held a series of workshops with patients, staff and clinicians who will be working in the new centre, and with the architects to explore where and how services would be located in the building. These took into account how patients and staff would move around the building, and informed the architect's plans, which went through the Southwark Council planning process. You can read reports from these events and view the planning consultation documents at the bottom of the page.
In May 2018, we confirmed financial close on the Dulwich Health Centre scheme. Work on site started shortly afterwards and our target for occupation is likely to be on a phased basis beginning towards the end of April 2020.
With building underway, we are now looking at the internal design of the health centre and how we can make it as accessible as possible for patients. The CCG is also overseeing aspects of the wider programme including the IT, the art strategy and the plan for of the physic garden.
Most importantly, we are preparing the services to be moved into the new health centre, including the commissioning of primary care (GP) services. Read more about this work here.
We also continue to work closely with the secondary school project to co-ordinate activities. The first part of the school opened in early 2019, with the second stage due to start when the health centre opens, and services currently provided in the current hospital building are relocated to the health centre.
