01 Oct 18 - 01 Oct 19
People in Hitchin and Letchworth are now receiving mental health services from teams based in a healthcare facility in Hitchin which has been officially opened by Bim Afolami, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden and Cllr John Bishop, Chairman of North Herts District Council.
Centenary House is one of Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust’s (HPFT) new hubs providing a base for a range of HPFT’s community teams working alongside each other.
The service supports older adults and adults of working age with mental health needs, with the emphasis on providing as much care as possible to people in their own homes.
HPFT’s Chief Executive Tom Cahill said: “Centenary House creates a very therapeutic and pleasant environment for our service users and staff. This is one of eight hubs across the county to undergo refurbishment as part of our wider vision to improve the overall experience and wellbeing of today’s service users, providing care and facilities fit for the 21st century.”
The Trust is developing models of care that are focused on recovery, based on international best practice and meet the needs of today’s service users for modern facilities.
