Adult Inpatient Redesign Project

The Adult Inpatient Redesign Project aims to transform adult mental health inpatient services across Hull and the East Riding. The project is currently in pre-consultation phase and aims to deliver a Pre-Consultation Business Case to outline the proposed changes in Spring 2023.

This page has been created to keep our key stakeholders and partners up to date with the case for change.



The project scope comprises mental health inpatient services that serve Hull and the East Riding, and are currently located across 5 different sites (Maister Lodge, New Bridges, Westlands, Miranda House and Mill View).

The current facilities are not conducive to enhancing patients’ recovery (no outside space, for example) and staff and patients feel isolated in these settings.

The Trust is exploring potential changes to the ways in which the services are delivered, with an aim to improve care and enhance experiences for both patients and staff.

The options being considered may include changes to where the current services are delivered from, if this can be demonstrated to improve patient outcomes, aid recovery, support staff, and tackle staffing challenges.

The Trust will fully engage with patients, service users, carers and other stakeholders to understand their views and, ultimately, to include their needs and views in any service redesign.

The project is subject NHS England approval and likely other statutory approvals (such as planning permission) following a Public Consultation.

The project is currently in the Pre-Consultation Business Case (PCBC) phase of this process and therefore is primarily focused on engaging with stakeholders to shape the possible options, to achieve the key objective, and to prepare for a formal public consultation for any proposed service changes.
