CCG Consultations

Consultation on relocating inpatient services for complex rehabilitation patients from Lime Walk House (Macclesfield) to Bowmere Hospital (Chester) rather than the proposed destination of Soss Moss, Nether Alderley

CLOSING DATE: 21 December 2018

This consultation follows the three-month consultation on the Redesign of Adults' and Older People’s Specialist Mental Health Services in Eastern Cheshire, South Cheshire and Vale Royal. It includes the areas that were not covered as part of the original consultation process, which have arisen as a result of an amended option being put forward that responds to public feedback.

The outcome of that consultation and the decision-making process can be viewed here. Option 2 Plus was selected by the CCG governing bodies as their preferred option to move forwards to implementation. Click here to view a helpful summary of Option 2 Plus compared to existing services.

Option 2 Plus means that the Lime Walk rehabilitation and assessment ward in Macclesfield would relocate to Bowmere Hospital in Chester. As this is a change from the original proposed destination for the rehabilitation and assessment ward, which was to move to Soss Moss (Nether Alderley) a further consultation period is now taking place with people who access Lime Walk House, their families and other interested parties, in order to hear further their views on the change.

All patients and carers currently using the services at Lime Walk House have received direct communication about this service change and have been provided with opportunities to meet with local clinicians, together with an advocate if they wish.

If you would like to join the conversation on this service change please call 01625 663477 or email

We are also holding three drop-in sessions for anyone who would like to meet to discuss this service change. They are taking place as follows and there is no need to pre-book to attend:

  • Friday 14 December, 12 noon - 2pm, Large Meeting Room, Jocelyn Solly Resource Centre, Macclesfield SK10 3JE
  • Monday 17 December, 3pm - 5pm, Meeting Room 15, Delamere Resource Centre, Crewe CW1 2ER
  • Monday 17 December, 6pm  -8pm, Oakmere Meeting Room, Vale House, Winsford CW7 2AS.


Should you have any queries about attending a drop-in session, or if you require any support, please call 01625 663477 or email

This period of consultation closes at 5pm on Friday 21 December 2018.

The CCGs will then consider feedback and whether subsequent amendments are required prior to the implementation of Option 2 Plus.

An update at the close of the consultation period will be posted to this website.
