The future of NHS services in the Acomb area may become a little clearer at a meeting scheduled to take place next week
Meadowfields (York) provides female dementia care.
The change will bring all dementia care within the York locality which will be important due to the connection with the acute hospital and physical healthcare. The transfer of the unit is anticipated during Winter 2016/17.
The Community Mental Health Team currently has office space and a small number of clinic rooms at Acomb Gables. Estate works have been agreed as part of the plans to bring Mental Health Older People beds into this unit. As part of these plans additional clinic space has been developed and will be available from Winter 2016/17.
However there is still no real news on the choice of location at which the City’s new mental health hospital will be built.
