The NHS Wesham Clinic is a new community-facing mental health rehabilitation centre based at the former Wesham Hospital Rehabilitation site on Mowbreck Lane, which provides a bridge between acute care and community living.
The project, managed between LSCft, Healthcare Support and Infrastructure Services (HSIS), Frank Whittle and contractors Eric Wright Construction, is an integral part of the Trust’s mental health rehab and recovery transformation work.
Prior to the opening, the NHS ran its mental health rehabilitation service through its Skylark Centre at Royal Preston Hospital, which was purpose built as an interim rehabilitation offering while Wesham was under development.

The development of the Wesham Centre moves away from the clinical setting and into a residential community space, a project designed with input from existing service users.
This new high-quality environment is a key part of the programme’s success and comfortability of its residents as they work to regain their independence.
We were appointed to install a number of Extremus Healthcare IPS Duct Systems and Bespoke Solid Surface Vanity Units, which were provided as part of a local supply chain and a compliant healthcare product as used many times previously by the NHS, together with providing and successfully delivering previous projects for Eric Wright Construction as a valuable member of their supply chain.
