Working with local clinical commissioners, GP’s, NHS representatives, and other community, sporting and healthcare groups in the Suffolk Town of Halesworth, NorthStar have designed a cutting edge care centre on behalf of their client Castlemeadow Care.
The Care Centre will incorporate a community hub building containing NHS outreach services, day surgery, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and general health promotion facilities, 68 nursing, dementia, respite, and day care beds, 42 Extra Care apartments, and a further development of 44 extra care bungalows as a second phase together with an information and advice centre for people with life limiting conditions.
Danny Sharpe, Director at NorthStar says: “After 18 months of working hard with Doctor Sanjay Kaushal of Castlemeadow Care on the designs for this innovative concept, we are incredibly happy to be in a position to move this project forward now to the next stage following the latest successful public exhibition.
Feedback from the public consultation was positive with people very much welcoming the new facility and integrated services for people where they live rather than travelling far and wide.
The HHC complex would be the focus for developing a model of care that actively promotes health, rather than just dealing with sickness. The masterplan includes proposals for a new sports hall to be developed and operated by a separate entity but which will be available to residents of the new health and care village as well as the wider population of Halesworth town and beyond.
