Our ambition

We want the St Pancras Hospital site to be an environment for everyone – a place that is open and accessible for all. Places have the power to maintain good mental health and help us to heal and we want to achieve this across everything we deliver as part of this masterplan.

We aim to redevelop the St Pancras Hospital site to allow the C&I Trust to provide exceptional clinical care in modern, accessible and sustainable mental health facilities, both on site and in Camden and Islington.

Alongside health care, we want to redevelop the St Pancras Hospital site to create new homes, offices and public spaces.

Wellbeing is at the heart of all our designs. We want to create a new environment that positively contributes to people’s mental and physical health, creating a place that is warm and welcoming for everyone who lives, works or visits the area.

We’ve been working alongside the local community and key stakeholders to ensure that our proposals align with our ambition as well as the needs of our neighbours in Camden and Islington. You can find out more about our consultation so far as well as our detailed designs for the masterplan here.

C&I’s wider St Pancras Transformation Programme

Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I) is now working together in a formal Partnership with Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust, known as the North London Mental Health Partnership (NLMHP).

Through the St Pancras Transformation Programme, NLMHP is delivering cutting-edge inpatient and community mental health services facilities across Camden and Islington. By investing in first-class facilities we will be able to deliver valuable community assets and improve the public’s understanding and interest in mental health.

The new facilities at Highgate East and Lowther Road will open this winter, providing spaces to support the wellbeing of local people NLMHP is also developing plans for a new community mental health facility at Greenland Road.

Through the St Pancras Mental Health Centre, ​NLMHP will provide 21 Century facilities which create a sense of place in the community and enable the Partnership to shine as a beacon for mental healthcare, research and education.

Importantly, by building world-class facilities NLMHP is supporting its Green Plan which aims to reach Net Carbon Zero by 2030.
