St Catherine’s Health Centre

St Catherine’s is a four storey health centre development commissioned by NHS Wirral in the grounds of the existing eight acre St Catherine’s Hospital site to sustainably meet the health and social care needs of the local population.

In an area undergoing significant regeneration, the £32 million development brings together public services and independent and voluntary sector agencies under one roof, addressing the area’s previously fragmented service delivery. Comprising five individual wings linked together by an internal street, the centre is home to two GP practices and services including physiotherapy, minor operations, X-Ray, mental health support and lifestyle advice.

Designed through extensive consultation with patients, clinicians, staff and the local community, the building has opened up the site to create a new public space that promotes links to the local area, while providing improved access, safety and a more therapeutic, patient-focused environment.
