Proposed Relocation of Community Services from Boughton Health Centre
Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) and the Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (CoCH) currently provide a range of community and outreach services from Boughton Health Centre in Chester.
These services are:
- CWP services
- COCH services
- Continence Advisory
- Speech and language therapy
Following formal notice from Boughton Medical Group, who own the health centre facility, CWP and COCH have been notified of the requirement to vacate its accommodation at Boughton Health Centre no later than 20th March 2022 as community services are unable to remain at Boughton.
CWP and CoCH are planning to relocate these services to alternative venues in Chester, as close as possible to the current Boughton Health Centre site. In the main these are the Lache Health Centre and the Fountains Health Building.
- Lache Health Centre - approximately 2.6 miles from Boughton Health Centre and is within walking distance from Clivedon Road, which is well served by public transport.
- Fountains Health Building - approximately 1 mile from Boughton Health Centre, located in Delamere Street, Chester, and is served by a council run car park with good public transport access.
Before progressing with the proposed relocations, CWP and the CoCH held a period of public and wider stakeholder engagement, from 10th January – 4th February, lasting a month. They contacted (by letter) the patients and carers who are currently on the caseloads affected and access services. They did this to ensure that were better able to understand their needs and provide continuity of care.
Following this period of engagement and taking on board feedback received, please read the engagement summary here, CWP and CoCH will now progress the short-distance relocation of community services from Boughton Medical Centre to their new bases on Monday 28th February.
