Galliford Try announces that its North West business has been appointed under the Procure Partnerships Framework to construct the new Community Cluster on behalf of Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.

The £15m development includes the construction of a new build facility that will provide space for mental health and neurodevelopmental outpatient facilities and a 12-bed specialist inpatient mental health unit, alongside other cross dependent health services.

There will be space for therapeutic gardens, undercroft parking and a community police hub. Enabling works are commencing in June, with the facility due for completion in 2021.

Leigh Carter, Healthcare Lead for Galliford Try North West, said: “We are looking forward to working with Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and providing a facility that meets the users and patients’ needs. We understand the importance of providing a facility that is both functional, but attractive, and we have been challenged to design and build a facility that will provide the users with a first-class working environment and deliver an excellent patient experience.”

Lisa Cooper, Director of Alder Hey’s Community and Mental Health Services said: “This is an exciting opportunity for our specialist community and mental health services to work together at Alder Hey to ensure our children, young people and families with complex conditions can access a range of specialist services in a child friendly environment. For our children and young people with mental health and neurodevelopmental conditions, this will ensure that their needs are met in an environment that equally supports both mental and physical health.”
