Clock View, situated in Walton, Liverpool, will treat local people for a range of mental health issues including depression, anxiety and dementia, providing 80 individual bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms. It will also provide the city’s new psychiatric intensive care unit for those most in distress and in need of urgent inpatient care.
Clock View principally replaced an existing adult mental health inpatient unit at Aintree called Stoddart House, which was handed back to Aintree University Hospital as part of the agreement to purchase the Walton site.
The building has been designed to provide light and airy spaces, individual bedrooms of the highest standards for privacy and dignity, as well as communal activity areas and safe inner courtyard gardens to aid people’s recovery.
There is also learning and education spaces; a café; a range of individual and group therapy/activity spaces, space for self-help, advocacy and voluntary organisations; spiritual space; family visiting rooms and meeting rooms, all contained in attractive low level buildings surrounded by landscaping.
Mersey Care has worked with the local community and numerous local, regional and national partners to bring about this project.
