Community Hubs: bringing your local services together

We are gradually bringing our community services for people of all ages together into improved accommodation over the next few years (2015-21).

Our community mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages will be moving to a series of locations across Surrey’s boroughs and in North East Hampshire.

We’re doing this to:

  • Create a more modern, welcoming environment and replace buildings which are no longer fit for purpose due to their poor condition, layout or facilities
  • Make us more accessible by public transport and for those with additional needs
  • Improve people’s experience of our services
  • Encourage better communications and more joined-up working by locating teams together
  • Make our services more affordable – and sustainable - by making better use of the space we have.

We have created three Hubs: for Guildford, North East Hampshire and for Waverley and we will be incorporating our learning from these projects into our plans for elsewhere.

Unither House, Chertsey

Unither House is a building we have acquired in central Chertsey, which will become our community hub building for teams that serve the north west Surrey area. 

Many of the teams moving there will be those affected by the sale of land on the west site at St Peter’s Hospital, though some other services in north west Surrey will be relocating to Unither House as well. 

Download the list of mental health and learning disability services that will be moving. 

We have chosen Unither House as our next community hub building because:

  • It is close to public transport and the town centre, so it’s convenient for people to get to (Chertsey station is a five minute walk, nearest bust stops are a one minute walk)
  • It has plenty of parking for staff and visitors coming to the building, plus it has a public car park next door 
  • It is modern and will be easy to maintain
  • It is of an equivalent standard to Gatton Place (Redhill) and Theta (Frimley), our other community hub buildings.

Services will be moving on 30 November and will be up and running at Unither House on 3 December 2018.

If you use any of the services that are relocating to Unither House, your team will provide you with more information. 

Theta, Frimley

Theta in Firmley.jpgTheta in Frimley is the home for our Surrey Heath community services, which were previously based in the Ridgewood Centre and Cedar House.

Theta building, close to Frimley town centre, is the base for a range of services and therapies, providing a bright, modern reception area, spacious consulting rooms, and group and art therapy rooms. It is close to public transport and has extensive parking.

Services in Theta

Other services may hold clinics and therapy sessions here.

The address is Lyon Way, Frimley GU16 7ER

The building is on a business park five minutes’ walk from Frimley town centre off the main Frimley Road. The Trust has its own landscaped courtyard entrance with disabled parking bays next to it.

 

Gatton Place, Redhill

Gatton-Place.jpgGatton Place in the centre of Redhill is the main base for community services in east Surrey.

Located close to the bus and train stations, the building has been designed and fitted out to meet the needs of both people who use our services and staff. It includes 20 consulting rooms, a clinical room, art therapy room and a variety of meeting rooms.

Many services for Reigate and Bandstead and for Tandridge are now located in Gatton Place. However we continue to run clinics in Tandridge for people who find it difficult to travel to Redhill.

Other services may hold clinics and therapy sessions here.

Getting to Gatton Place

The location is: St Matthews Road, Redhill, RH1 1TA.

Redhill train and bus stations are just a few minutes walk away.

Due to its central location, on-site parking is limited but there are car parks nearby. There are disabled parking bays and drop off space for minibuses at the front of the building.

 

 

 

Langley House in Oxted has now closed and services that were based there have now moved to Gatton Place and our new Tandridge Hub in Caterham Dene.

Who will be affected?

This will affect the majority of our community learning disability and mental health services for people of all ages. Our inpatient/residential, drug and alcohol or day services will not be relocating to our Community Hubs.

People will still receive support from the same person but may be asked to attend a different location for their appointment.

We will be keeping a widespread presence across the county so that people won’t have to travel far. And, just as we do now, we will continue to see people at home or at other agreed venues, such as a GP practice, if that’s more convenient.
