Lambeth Community Care Centre 25th Anniversary

On February 17th, Ted Cullinan, Robin Nicholson and Kristina Roszynski took part in the 25th Anniversary event at the wonderful Lambeth Community Care Centre (LCCC), which was chaired by local MP Kate Hoey.

The Friends of LCCC are fiercely defensive of the services provided in what was a radical realignment of community care away from the large hospitals, to a place where patients are looked after by their own GP as though they were in their homes. The design of the building which was widely acclaimed has been seriously compromised by recent insensitive interventions - there were no false ceiling tiles, wobbly glass blocks or pink paint back then. Much of what made the building special as the result of intensive consultation with the highly motivated Project Team has been removed and made banal and normal. The garden remains a real asset.
