Wood Green 2022 consultation

About this consultation

Whittington Health wants to provide high quality, modern and appropriate environments that support our vision to help local people live longer and healthier lives. To make improvements we will need to make some changes and we would like to hear from you about the proposed moves.

We currently provide services out of many locations across the borough. We have been working with Haringey Council as well as other local partners to think about where you access health services. We want to make this access simpler and more joined up for our patients and service users and we will achieve this by listening to you and working in partnership with the Council and voluntary sector.

In these proposals the only change is the location Ė the number of appointments, the clinicians that you see, and level of service will remain the same. We are also proposing to offer some new services in the community, including a group space and digital booths that allow people to access their healthcare appointments online.

 
The consultation will run from Wednesday 23 February until Wednesday 18 May 2022.
 

Please note:

This consultation is only regarding the community services that Whittington Health NHS Trust provide in the community. The only GP practice that may potentially move into the Wood Green hub is Hornsey Wood Green Practice.
 
This hub consultation is a different project to the Wood Green Community Diagnostic Centre, the CDC will open in Summer 2022.

Throughout the consultation we will be hosting several events to discuss the proposals and to listen to your thoughts. We will offer face-to-face and virtual meetings.

Why now?

  • Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust (BEH) who own the St Annís Hospital site are redeveloping it. However, even once revamped the location will not be as suitable as a central Wood Green location for our Dentistry and Audiology services.
  • The central Wood Green site will be developed using patient feedback, to make it a modern, friendly and accessible health centre.
  • At the end of March, Whittington Health Trust will need to decide where our services will be located to prevent costly planning and building works being duplicated.
  • Haringey residents have told us that they want to be able to access health and care services in Wood Green.
  • The hub will allow healthcare professionals to work closely together as part of a multi-disciplinary team.
  • The move will save Whittington Health money in the long run as we will pay rent for less locations.

What we are proposing?

Currently we have two adult community health service hubs in the east and west of the borough, at Hornsey Central Neighbourhood Health Centre and Lordship Lane Primary Care Centre. We do not currently have a central Haringey health hub.

We are proposing the creation of a new central Haringey health hub, this would be based in a central Wood Green location and would include primary care, and other NHS services as well as some council services.

As part of the proposals North Central London CCG are consulting on the move of Hornsey Wood Green GP Practice, which would be co-located with community services provided by WH, NMUH and BEH. No other GP services are included in the consultation.

We run services for people who live centrally from:

  • Bounds Green Health Centre
  • Stuart Crescent Health Centre
  • St Annís Hospital.
We are proposing to co-locate services that are currently based at these three sites in Wood Green. We are looking at a central location, potentially within The Mall shopping centre.

Benefits
  • People will be able to access one-stop-shop services for podiatry, diabetes and leg ulcer clinics.
  • The innovative health hub will provide easier access to services offered by partners including other NHS organisations, the Council and potentially voluntary community organisations.
  • The central health hub will be located close to the new Wood Green Community Diagnostic Centre, which offers blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound and ophthalmology appointments.
Challenges 
  
  • Some people may have to travel further to have their appointments
  • Patients and service users may not want to be seen in a different location.
  • Parking at The Mall requires payment.
