Where will the centre be located?
The former David Lister School site, off New Bridge Road in East Hull, has been selected as the preferred site for the proposed Integrated Care Centre. East Hull has the highest level of admissions to hospitals, which includes unplanned emergency admissions and admissions for a stroke, fall or fracture.
Whilst the use of existing health buildings was carefully considered, no existing building has sufficient capacity to accommodate the type of development needed for this innovative approach to delivering health and social care.
The site offers good access, flexibility and capacity for the proposed new facility, alongside a development being planned by Pickering and Ferens Housing Association for 54 bungalows on the site. The association is a specialist at providing housing for older people and additional care should people need it.
The development of both proposals, the new facility and the bungalows, will be subject to the planning process and more detailed plans will be provided for public consultation when available.
