Dewsbury, West Yorkshire
Sector: Mental Health
- This new 32 bed rehabilitation mental health hospital was in response to the local demand identified by Kirklees Council and the Operator, Craegmoor, now merged with Priory.
- A wide search was undertaken across the district and negotiations enabled this town centre site, set in a residential area and adjacent to a College, to be accepted and integrated into the local community.
- New employment has been welcomed, and the project was handed over in June 2012 ahead of programme and to budget.
