SLaM Place of Safety views needed

Currently, there is a small place of safety in each of the boroughs we serve (Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark).  South London and Maudsley are proposing to replace these with one larger Central Place of Safety on the Maudsley Hospital site in Southwark.

It is recommended you try to visit SLaM’s new place of safety and give your views at the link below
