Author: Cyril RichertThe saga of the PCS building continues. A planning application (2018/2208) is being submitted to transform the first floor from office space to a healthcare facility.
Harmless enough, it seems to be due to the local community healthcare services having been transferred from St Georges NHS trust (who already have local facilities in the area) to Central London NHS trust (who don’t have many); it’s been a bit of an issue for a while in health circles and this seems a reasonably pragmatic (and cheap) solution. The NHS should receive appointments from hospitals for maternity/sexual health.
Bizarrely, the new facility is currently labelled “Clapham Hub” on the planning documents, despite the big board a few hundred yards away claiming “Welcome to the Heart of Battersea, Clapham Junction”. Hopefully somebody will realise before completion (if not, surely Love Battersea could help)…
PCS will remain in the building but occupying the top floor(s) only.
