New Health And Social Care Centre Is First Of Its Kind In The West Midlands

A new flagship social care and health facility in Sandwell, featuring 80 en-suite rooms, is the first of its kind in the West Midlands.

Harvest View in Rowley Regis cost approximately £14m to build and will provide on-site specialist support from health and social care staff, to get people back home after a hospital visit or for people who need structured support to avoid a hospital stay altogether.

With a host of facilities such as kitchen space, a hairdressing salon, treatment rooms and a large outdoor space, Sandwell Council states that the “focus is on maintaining and improving independent living rather than specifically treating the medical condition.

Councillor Hartwell said: “This is such an innovative and collaborative project. Harvest View is a magnificent building. For Sandwell residents who will be using this facility, for their families and for the staff who will be working there, this is an amazing person-centred place.

“Harvest View offers residents choice and control over their care and also promotes independence, helping us with our ambition for Sandwell people to live well and age well.”

Sarah Oley said: “This is a fantastic example of partnership working between us at the Trust and our partners at Sandwell Council and we look forward to caring for those people of Sandwell who need the reablement support offered here at Harvest View.”
