Residents are being invited to have their say on plans to create an “integrated health and wellbeing hub” in Wood Green.

A consultation has been launched on proposals to move a range of services currently provided at Bounds Green and Stuart Crescent health centres to a new site at The Mall in High Road, Wood Green.

The plans drawn up by Whittington Health NHS Trust would also see the community dental, audiology and musculoskeletal physiotherapy services moved from St Ann’s Hospital to the new centre.

Hornsey Wood Green GP Practice could also move to the proposed hub, and a separate consultation has been launched on this proposal by North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group.

One reason behind the proposed service moves is to save Whittington Health NHS Trust money by reducing the number of buildings on which it pays rent.

Further benefits of the hub, according to the trust, would include good transport links, a more modern building, and easier access to services provided by partner organisations such as Haringey Council. “Digital booths” could also be created, allowing people to access healthcare appointments online.

The hub would be close to the Wood Green Community Diagnostic Centre, due to open in The Mall this summer, which will offer blood tests, x-ray, ultrasound and ophthalmology appointments.

The trust says the number of appointments, the clinicians that people see and the level of service will remain the same following the moves. However, it acknowledges some patients may have to travel further for their appointments and pay for parking at The Mall.

The consultation on the changes is open until May 18 and available here:
