A new state-of-the-art mental health hub is being created in High Wycombe to provide a centre of excellence for people in South Buckinghamshire.

Set to start operating later this month at the former registry office building in Easton Street. It will ultimately bring together a range of mental health teams under one roof.

The move is happening to provide a better-integrated quality service to adults and young people. With care being delivered in a fresh, modern environment.

Service areas will be zoned with separate entrances for service users of different age groups. (This is to reduce anxiety for people attending appointments).

The site also benefits from increased public parking, nearby public transport links, onsite refreshments, and great accessible facilities.

Also, the building will also have strong ‘green’ credentials. It has low energy lighting, cycling bays and e-vehicle charging points.

Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust services will be relocating there in a phased programme between May and July. These include:

  • Early Intervention Service
  • Chiltern Community Mental Health Team
  • Perinatal Mental Health Service
  • Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team
  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service
  • Older Adult Mental Health Services & Memory Clinics
  • Continuing Health Care.

It will be officially opening in the summer.
