Cranleigh Village Health Trust (CVHT), in partnership with HC-One, NHS Guildford and Waverley Clinical Commissioning Group (G&W CCG), Surrey County Council (SCC) and the Royal Surrey County Hospital (RSCH), is proposing the return of free at the point of access community beds to Cranleigh.
The project will deliver 20 community beds for both NHS and SCC nursing care, prioritised for patients from Cranleigh and the surrounding villages, replacing the 14 beds in Cranleigh Village Hospital that were closed in 2006. In addition, the project will create affordable accommodation for healthcare workers employed locally.
The new facilities will be located in the heart of the village off Knowle Lane, adjacent to the Village Way car park and will also include 60 open-market care home beds, operated by HC-One.
“It will be great to see community beds provided again in Cranleigh, and this will be much welcomed by family and friends who want to visit their loved ones close by. My very grateful thanks go to all those who have kept this project alive and worked so hard for so long to bring it close to reality.” Anne Milton, former MP
