Towards the end of June, Paula Barker MP visited Kensington Neighbourhood Health Centre as part of her fact-finding visit to a range of health & wellbeing centres across the patch. The visit was facilitated by gbpartnerships - on behalf of LIFTCo Liverpool & Sefton Health Partnership – and the LIFT Council.

Paula is the Labour MP for Liverpool, Wavertree, and currently undertakes the role of Shadow Minister (Levelling Up, Housing, Communities and Local Government). Paula was particularly interested in encouraging better use of the LIFT estate by voluntary / third sector organisations.

Kensington Neighbourhood Health Centre opened in March 2013 and is situated on a major strategic gateway to Liverpool city centre. The health centre replaced existing portable cabins and poor-quality accommodation, whilst providing additional capacity to deliver a wider range of services.

Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust is forging ahead with plans to create a modern, state of the art, mental health facility on land at Mossley Hill, Liverpool, which the Trust owns. Liverpool Sefton Health Partnership is overseeing the construction of the new mental health facility which will sit on the Mossley Hill Hospital site and is part of Mersey Care’s ambition to replace out-dated dormitory-style accommodation. The new state of the art, 80-bed adult mental health facility, will carry on a tradition of the site serving the people of Liverpool. This short newsletter (attached below) brings together a summary of progress with the development of this new mental health facility. You can see CGI animations of the site and hear from service users and others about the work happening by searching for ‘Mersey Care Mossley Hill’ or on this link: Download newsletter here:
