It's going to be specialist accommodation.

Specialist accommodation is being created in Dorchester for vulnerable adults leaving hospital.

NHS Property Services has sold Coburg Court in Dorchester to Dorset Council and East Boro Housing Trust.

The site used to be used by hospital staff.

It will now be converted into a living space for people leaving hospital and two family homes.

Proceeds from the sale are being reinvested back into the NHS and the primary care estate.

The new premises, funded by the NHS England Transforming Care Programme, Dorset Council and East Boro, will enable residents to leave hospital settings and enjoy their home environment with care support being provided in their new accommodation.

Further benefits of the sale will be realised through in-patient care cost reduction and bed space being available for patients who require them most.

Following the transaction, Nicola Booth, Senior Transaction Manager at NHS Property Services said: "This transaction celebrates all stakeholders in Health, Housing, Social Services and Commissioning working together to provide this specialist accommodation for the benefit of the local Dorchester community and Dorset County."

Kevin Hodder, Chief Executive of East Boro said "This is an excellent example of The NHS, Dorset Council and a Local Specialist Housing Association working together to make this project happen. East Boro is extremely grateful to our colleague organisations for supporting our vision for the future of Coburg Court and now look forward to providing both supported and family accommodation at the scheme."
