Tony Railton, CEDAR Programme Consultant, added:
“The land sale at Northgate Hospital in Morpeth is
just the latest in a long line of service innovations and
investment by the Trust to ensure that service users
have access to the latest state of the art facilities. It
demonstrates the Trust’s commitment to regenerate and
improve care and sees the latest investment in improving
mental health services in the North of England.”
Further information can be found by contacting Tim
Sedgewick or Robert Jauneika on 01913708530.
The land for sale, which is split across two individual
areas, is set within the mature grounds of the operational
Northgate Hospital which itself is undergoing redevelopment. Adjacent to a previous phase of
development, it is part of an ongoing strategy to fund the
overhaul of the Trust’s specialist medium secure facilities,
as part of its CEDAR programme (Care Environment
Development and Re-provision).
Commenting on the sale and appointment, Tim
Sedgewick, Head of Land Agency (North East &
Yorkshire) for H&H Land & Estates, said:
“We are honoured to be entrusted with such a
significant sale for the NHS, and one that will have such
an enormous impact on future health services offered
throughout the region.
“This is an amazing opportunity for the development
of highly sought-after housing, in an area that has seen
unprecedented demand in recent times, due to its
close proximity to Morpeth town centre, the stunning
Northumberland coast, and convenience to the A1 and
East Coast mainline train service. I expect the sale to
attract huge interest and we are excited to work with the
NHS to ensure a successful sale.”
The Cedar Programme’s £73 million project includes
the development of state-of-art medium secure facilities
at Northgate Hospital, the re-provision of Newcastle
and Gateshead adult inpatient services in Gosforth and
the re-provision of adolescent medium-secure inpatient
services at Prudhoe.
