Estuary View, Whitstable Phase 1
Our planning application is for an Integrated Community Healthcare Centre (ICHC) and a care home for the elderly. The ICHC building consists of 101 en-suites with communal areas and ancillary accommodation. On the ground floor there is also a Day Care Centre providing care for approximately 20 people and CHOC- Community Hub Operational Centre.
The aim of ICHC is to provide additional capacity to care for complex patients without the need for A&E/ acute admission. This would enable a new diagnostic, assessment and treatment facility with modern care suites that are equiped to deliver high level of care. It would be an enhanced extension of their own primary care but providing dedicated medical, nursing and therapy support within one building.
The care home building consists of 102 en-suites, communal areas and ancillary accommodation. The proposal has been designed to incorporate our approach to care provision, along with a respectful approach to the existing built environment and local environment.
A full planning application will be placed in the last quarter of 2016.
