ABOUT THE BUILDING
This is the first of five sites for development under the TIME (To Improve Mental Health Environments) Initiative by Mersey Care NHS Trust. Edge Lane will provide 85 inpatient beds and support accommodation. It will include three acute inpatient adult wards, one ward each for older people and dementia services, acute day services with shared activity/ therapy space, and learning, assessment, educational, and office accommodation.
BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certification was sought as a funding requirement and the client fully supported the aims of the NHS Sustainable Development Unit’s Environmental Sustainability agenda.
