HPFT and Hertfordshire Community Trust (HCT) have joined forces to provide a new state-of-the-art health and wellbeing centre in the middle of Hemel Hempstead, The Marlowes Health and Wellbeing Centre. The newly refurbished building is home to community mental health services for adults and children provided by HPFT, along with a range of physical services provided by HCT.
The name was a popular choice among service users, carers, staff and the public following an invitation to help choose one. It also helps identify the centre with a specific location in the town, which will be helpful for visitors.
All adult and children’s services are on dedicated floors, making them easier for patients to find. There are dedicated floors for adults and children.
Karen Taylor, Director of Integration and Partnerships at HPFT, said: “We are very excited about this project, which will provide a great place to work and to receive care. It is a great space for us to support our service users and patients, to look after both their physical and mental health and wellbeing. We have listened to and involved our service users throughout the process.”
Marion Dunstone, Director of Operations at HCT, said: “Many of the services we are moving into The Marlowes Health & Wellbeing Centre already work together. Bringing them together under one roof will make that even easier in the coming years and will mean we can provide a more joined up approach to healthcare for local people. We are creating a modern environment that is welcoming for patients and service users and pleasant for our staff to work in.” The centre was formally opened on 11 May.
