Our new Health Based Place of Safety has begun to take shape, with work beginning to renovate and rebuild the site beginning last week.
A Place of Safety is a safe, comfortable environment where service users can be assessed in privacy to see how we can best support them.
The new area will be a significant improvement on our current site, built to be more therapeutic, safe and dignified for all who use it.
It’s the latest in a long line of projects from our therapeutic environments team, which has seen many spaces improved across SHSC. These include our wards, a staff rest area, Beech, the new Longley Centre reception and other work across our sites.
