Changing Places for Hospitals

Funding to install Changing Places toilets in hospitals 

The Department of Health and Social Care has made £2 million available for NHS Acute (Hospital) Trusts in England to install Changing Places toilets.

The aim of the funding is to increase the availability of Changing Places toilets across hospitals in England.

If an NHS Trust  already has Changing Places facilities they can still apply for funding to install further facilities. 

We strongly encourage all hospitals in England who do not currently provide a Changing Places toilet to apply for funding to install as this will vastly improve the experience of many people visting your hospital. 

From 1 June 2019, NHS trusts in England can bid for funding to install Changing Places facilities in NHS hospitals.

The prospectus (found here on the Government website) sets out:

  • how the funding can be used
  • eligibility
  • the application process
  • requirements for Changing Places facilities

We believe our experience in helping organisations deliver projects such as Changing Places places us uniquely able to help hospital trusts deliver on their goals. Whether repurposing an exisitng space or building a new room, we can assist you with plans, compliance and validation, visualisations, as well as helping builders to understand exactly what is required so the project is delivered on time and (most importantly) on budget!

NB: Primary care providers, community hospitals and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are not eligible to apply. Private providers of health services are also not eligible for the funding. But we're still here to help...

For a no-obligation discussion to chat through your plans to deliver a Changing Places facility, drop us a line at hello@wealdenrehab.com - we'll be delighted to help!
