Farnham Road Hospital opened in December 2015 and was carefully designed to provide personalised care in a respectful and supportive environment to aid recovery. It includes:
- four wards for adults, all with single bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms to provide people with more privacy and dignity
- therapeutic and recreational areas including art and craft rooms, multi-purpose spaces for exercise groups or drama therapy and a fitness room
- private, safe gardens and outside spaces directly accessible from each ward
- public areas including gardens and café for everyone to enjoy
- facilities for people who are brought in by police in need of a place of safety (Section 136)
- a base for our Home Treatment Team who provide intensive support to enable people to be independent within their home environment when they first leave hospital or possibly to prevent a stay in hospital.
The main hospital entrance is accessed via Bray Road, which is also the access road to and from the car park. The new building is linked to the old, original building along Farnham Road through a glazed pedestrian walkway.
A number of old, outdated buildings were demolished to make way for the new hospital.
