One of the first facilities in the UK to provide integrated health, housing and social care under one roof, Haltwhistle Integrated Care Facility in Northumberland is a very powerful example of excellent practice in combining these services together.
The residential element, Greenholme Court, provides 12 extra care flats for tenants, with the redevelopment of Haltwhistle War Memorial Hospital offering 15 hospital beds for rehabilitation support and care for elderly patients as well as providing a Minor Injuries Unit for the wider public.
The integrated nature of the scheme, which Faithful+Gould provided quantity surveying services for, ensures that the whole community can use the facility. The flats promote independent living and wellbeing, allowing tenants to be part of a supportive community with access to social activities as well as healthcare support and assistance. Since the project was completed, it has been given industry award recognition.
