St Charles Centre for Health & Wellbeing

Earth was appointed by the PCT to spearhead “a radical review” at St Charles Hospital (and surrounds) for an exciting new Centre for Health & Wellbeing, a centre of health innovation, based on the vision for the community set out by the PCT and its successors, the CCG.

Kensington & Chelsea wished to use a Victorian hospital site, St Charles, to develop a new model of service delivery offering an innovative approach to health promotion, health care and wellbeing. The project aimed to create a real synergy with the new community hospital by bringing people into the site and focusing on health promotion and improved health outcomes for the local community.
