Mental health boost for Nottingham trust

  • 4th January 2024

The two projects will improve the delivery of mental health services in the city

Tilbury Douglas has completed construction of Tall Trees and the Glade at Highbury Hospital for Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

This includes a refurbishment and reconfiguration of Tall Trees, an existing two-storey building providing office accommodation with meeting rooms, breakout areas, meeting spaces, and staff amenity/rest facilities for the trust’s mental health crisis teams.

The second project, The Glade, is a refurbishment and new-build extension to provide a new mental healthcare outpatient facility comprising consultation rooms, group activity rooms, reception, a waiting area, and staff facilities.

Works also include a new fenced garden for service users.

The handover also marks the first anniversary of Sherwood Oaks Hospital, a 5,000sq m complex refurbishment project with new-build extensions.

Spread across three blocks, two of which house four wards and one comprising an administration area, the new site provides modern healthcare facilities for the care of around 70 patients.

The Sherwood Oaks project generated £6.5m of social value investment back into the community, with particular emphasis on skills and opportunities. Alongside work placements and employment for local people, the project team engaged local businesses, with 64% of the supply chain being sourced locally, upholding Tilbury Douglas’ commitment to enhancing local economy spend across its projects.
