Clockview Mental Health Facility

Clock View is the first of five sites for development under the TIME (To Improve Mental Health Environments) Initiative by Mersey Care NHS Trust,

Clock View is a state-of-the-art mental health facility for the Walton community in Liverpool. The project involved the development of site to provide a 85 bed inpatient facility including learning and education/training spaces, interview rooms for assessment and crisis resolution home treatment teams and administration/office areas.

The building was designed as a sequence of low pavilions with semi-private and secure gardens that are interlinked by more prominent treatments and offices to create an intensive therapeutic setting.

As well as ecological landscape gardens, staff and service users enjoy a range of artwork commissioned with the building. This new hospital marks a step change in the quality of mental health facilities in the North West of England and is conceived to foster recovery and well-being.
