Two new independent hospitals have opened their doors near Chesterfield providing a rehabilitation and recovery for men and women with mental health and associated complex problems.

Blackshale and Silkstone House, at Mastin Moor, will offer intensive staffing, community support, involvement in care planning and the latest technology.

The new buildings, owned and operated by Turning Point, comprise 28 self-contained apartments with open and light living spaces, panoramic views across Derbyshire, and high spec facilities.

Operations manager Jane Diver said: “Blackshale and Silkstone House services will provide much needed community rehabilitation for people in need, the buildings are a stunning addition to the area, and the staff team are enthusiastic and highly trained.”
