Dulwich Hospital
This progress report by Vi Beevers, our representative on the Community Involvement and Communications Group (CICG) for the new Dulwich Community Hospital in East Dulwich Grove, was published in SPAG's Newsletter for May 2004.

It is now hoped that the new hospital will open in
2007. King's College Hospital is to transfer its acute services to Denmark Hill and will vacate Dulwich Hospital by the end of this year. The building of the new hospital is expected to begin early in 2005.

The first developments to be completed are:
the Primary Care Centre;
the Wellbeing Centre, which will include public health and meeting and office space;
outpatients;
prosthesis (for both old and young).

The number of patients expected daily is 2,000-3,000 (a "guess"). Staff will number about 300.

The remainder of the site is still being debated, but the majority of CICG members are insisting that it be used for affordable houses or flats for staff and/or other interests of the hospital.

The CICG has a mini-forum sub-group which visits organisations throughout Southwark to inform them and work with them to ensure that their interests are included in the development of the hospital. If you know of an organisation that would like a visit, contact Claire Foreman (Chair of the CICG): telephone 7346 6444, fax 7346 6445, or write to her at Dulwich Hospital, East Dulwich Grove, SE22 8PT.
