Hornsey Central Health Centre
Hornsey Central has been an established setting for community based care for more than 50 years. Hornsey Central Neighbourhood Health Centre was created as a replacement for the Hornsey Central Cottage Hospital. The new health centre is a key part of a commitment to moving healthcare closer to people’s homes and to improving both the health of the local people and access to services.
The £10m building at Hornsey Central has been designed for both space and environmental standards that the NHS has for all of its buildings.
The building was commissioned by the former Haringey Teaching Primary Care Trust with construction commencing in August 2007 and completion of the new building in March 2009. NLEP also oversee the facilities management (FM) and life cycle works for this building, which is delivered by Bellrock FM on a day-to-day basis.
Co-located on the site is a Community Mental Health Resource centre. This is a base for West Haringey Community Mental Health Team for Older People, along with a Dementia Care Centre. Thanks to a generous donation from The Lewis and Mary Haynes Trust, a Dementia day care centre provides an invaluable resource for members of the local community suffering from dementia to spend time in a safe and caring environment.
A unique feature of Hornsey Central is the space devoted to local charities and organisations, such as Age Concern and the Citizen’s Advice Bureau, as well as local community groups who are encouraged to run health, wellbeing and information services. At the heart of the building, there is a two storey, glazed, public atrium space that provides a backdrop to the listed war memorial.
Haringey CCG commissions the services delivered from Hornsey Central Health Centre. All enquiries in this regard should be directed to Haringey CCG. CHP Property Team manage the building on a day-to-day basis and all enquiries in this regard should be directed to CHP.
