CHP leaders view progress on new Neuro Rehabilitation Unit at Mount Gould LCC

Members of CHP’s Senior Leadership Team visited Mount Gould Local Care Centre (LLC), Plymouth recently and saw the great progress on the £6.9 million capital project to reconfigure space to house Livewell Southwest’s Plym Neuro Rehabilitation Service.

It was a really impressive development supporting a great service. I know how important neuro rehab is, patients are often in hospital for 12 months and the environment plays a huge part in their recovery. It is fantastic to be contributing to improving this important service for patients not only in Plymouth, but across the South West.

The leadership team met with Geoff Baines, Deputy Chief Executive at Livewell Southwest and Adrian Griffin and Kevin Wortley, Estate Managers for Resound Health Limited, managed by gbpartnerships.  They heard about the importance of the service and the huge impact the new facility will have on patients and staff.  NHS partners valued CHP’s partnership working and how through our commitment, our building and our capital investment we have unlocked the estate and service challenges the local health system was grappling with for some time at the Mount Gould health campus.

Mount Gould Local Care Centre is a large healthcare facility managed by Community Health Partnerships (CHP) in Plymouth. It is part of the Mount Gould Hospital Estate, which encompasses a variety of healthcare facilities, some dating back to the 1800s.

The Plym Neuro Rehabilitation Service is currently provided from a neighbouring outdated facility within the Hospital Estate. This 15-bed inpatient facility caters to adults with acquired brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other neurological conditions.

Mount Gould Local Care Centre opened in 2006 and currently offers a comprehensive range of services, including inpatient rehabilitation, outpatient care, and primary healthcare services. 

The capital project upon completion will enable the delivery of neurological services from a modern and fit-for-purpose environment.  It also supports greater productivity from the NHS estate through increased utilisation.

The project is set to be completed in early 2025 and is  scheduled to open to patients in April 2025.


Optimising Estates Through Partnership Working

The relocation of the Plym Neurological Service to Mount Gould LCC and the reconfiguration of the Hospital Estate demonstrate a commitment to providing high-quality healthcare services in a modern and efficient environment. This project exemplifies the power of collaboration and innovation in the healthcare sector.
