Julian’s statement on tonight’s vote on Covid-19 tier restrictions

Julian welcomes today’s opening of new mental health hospital for York

April 21, 2020

Julian is really pleased to hear that Foss Park – the city’s new state-of-the-art mental health hospital on Haxby Road – has opened its doors today, a week ahead of the building schedule.

The new hospital will contain 72 beds in 4 wards, and will provide a permanent modern replacement for the closed Bootham Park Hospital.
This represents an investment of approximately £40.6 million in local health service infrastructure by the Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Trust, that manages York’s mental health care.

Julian said “I am glad that local residents now have the security of knowing that if they or anyone in their family develops mental health issues, they can be treated in a dedicated, brand-new facility close to home. It is reassuring that the mental health provision previously available at Bootham Park has been replaced in full, and enhanced.

The new facilities include 72 inpatient bedrooms with en-suite facilities across four wards, two adult and two for older people, in a pleasant, landscaped environment. I understand transfer of inpatients from temporary facility Peppermill Court and other locations will commence in a phased approach.

I very much look forward to visiting the new site myself as soon as normal conditions resume.”
