Award Entry

AHMM's new health centre offers more than your average doctor's surgery 

Kentish Town Health Centre (KTHC) is a new health building in central London which sets a new standard for the NHS. The partnership of a local design champion, Dr Roy MacGregor, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris architects and Camden & Islington Community Solutions have delivered a building where design delivers the integration of services as never before. From the waiting room, all services can be easily identified, aiding way finding, facilitating integration, and making best use of the extraordinary light and transparency of the design.

Located in a residential area just off Kentish Town’s busy high street this three storey building creates a new community focus. The building, completed in December 2008, houses a large GP practice, a dentist, paediatric, dental and children’s services, breast screening and diagnostic imaging, plus office space, staff facilities, library and meeting rooms all designed around an internal street. Ideas of transparency and connectivity were embraced by the architects and the whole team worked collaboratively to create a building that expresses a new, holistic approach to healthcare.

The public facilities and innovative services provided have had significant impact on outcomes. Community space is not just a room, but a multifunctional suite providing additional discrete consulting, immunisation, and interview space flowing together. Finance, debt, and employment advice are available, as well as traditional counselling and exercise sessions.

Kentish Town Health Centre provides an uplifting, inspiring environment of high quality for users and staff delivered through the LIFT procurement process, setting a new standard for modern healthcare provision.
