Temporary move of all services from Lowther Road
When it completes at the end of 2023, Lowther Road will provide a modern, welcoming space in the heart of the community. Our services have temporarily moved from the Lowther Road site to enable to construction of the new building.
Dr Vincent Kirchner, Medical Director at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust said: “Improving the quality of our community facilities is a crucial part of our plans to help people with mental health problems to live well in their communities. Good community services enable people who need our support to receive help early on in their illness, reducing the impact of the illness and the need for a hospital admission.
“By redeveloping our ageing building at Lowther Road, we have the opportunity to create a modern, welcoming facility with more space. This will allow us to offer integrated services that address overall wellbeing, for example mental health and physical health, and will provide the accommodation we need to co-locate our clinical teams to join-up the care we provide.”
Throughout the construction phase, all service users will still be able to access the services they need as follows:
• The North Islington Recovery and Rehab Team – Our new community site at Regis Road, Kentish Town, London, NW5 3EG. Our new facility is next to Howdens
• Islington Assertive Outreach Team – Southwood Smith Centre, 11 Southwood Smith Street, London, N1 0YL
We envisage that building work at Lowther Road will take around 18 to 24 months to complete.
