A new community mental health hub, providing modern outpatient facilities for local people of all ages who need to access mental health and learning disability services, in Northallerton. Named North Moor House, the development has been delivered in partnership with Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust (TEWV).
Input from service users and carers has helped shape the design of the 2,500 square metre building and its surroundings, ensuring it will meet the needs of the local population. A welcoming entrance and reception area greets visitors, while light and airy consulting rooms are a key feature throughout the three-storey facility.
As well as offering modern, welcoming facilities, North Moor House also provides community team offices and much needed increased consulting room space. This will support improved access to services, allowing more people to be seen as quickly as possible and reducing waiting times.
“The subject of mental health has become increasingly pressing throughout the years, particularly within construction where the industry is working hard to reduce the stigma and signpost those in need to support. It is really positive to see the development of facilities like North Moor House and as a local contractor we’re proud to play our part in its construction.”
The development of North Moor House represents TEWV’s ongoing commitment to invest in the modernisation of mental health services. The new hub, is a much-welcomed addition to the local community and brings mental health and learning disability services from the Friarage, Brompton House and Gibraltar House, together, under one roof.
