Top mental health unit closing

15th April 2008

The NHS will close a leading mental health facility, the Henderson hospital in south-west London, next week. 

Health service managers have said that the closure is only a "temporary" measure, but staff believe it will be very difficult for the unit to open again. A spokesman for the trust said: "Should there be sufficient referrals of people for admission at the same time, which would make the service clinically viable, the trust will re-open the hospital."
