Get involved

Due to Covid-19 and government guidance, we’re unfortunately unable to hold in-person exhibition events. However, we’re committed to sharing our proposals with the local community and providing opportunities for people to give their feedback as we develop designs and before we submit a planning application to Camden Council later this year.

We held two online discussion meetings to present our designs for the proposed building and to give the local community an opportunity to ask the project team any questions they had regarding our plans. We showed a film as part of these meetings which you can watch below. If you were unable to attend but would still like to speak to a member of the Oriel team you can email us at or call us on our freephone number 0800 3077 967.

Attend an online public meeting

We will be presenting our proposals at Camden Council’s online public meeting, a Development Management Forum, on Thursday 24 September at 7pm. For more information and to register to attend, go to Camden Council’s website using the button below.

Other ways to send your feedback

We want your views on the early designs of the new centre. This feedback will be essential in helping us design a centre that is modern, fit-for-purpose and accessible for patients, carers and other users.

We will be sharing more detailed designs in the autumn, where you will again have the opportunity to provide comments, before we submit our planning application to Camden Council.

Are you interested in being a patient, carer or organisational representative for Oriel?

We are looking for members to join our already established Oriel Advisory Group (OAG) that is made up of patients, carers and visitors. The group advises the Oriel team on our communication and engagement activity about the proposed new centre.

We are also looking to recruit members for our new Oriel Partners Advisory Group. It is our aim to include representatives of charities and community organisations. This group will work closely with our accessibility consultants who will audit routes to the site, provide guidance on ways we can ease the user journey from transport hubs to the proposed site and lead stakeholder engagement about this. The new Oriel Partners Advisory Group will provide input based on their experience.

Both groups will play a vital role in ensuring the patient voice informs the wider work of Oriel.

If you are interested in becoming a member of either group, please download and complete an expression of interest form.  Please complete the form by Friday 27 September 2020 and return it to

If you would like any of this information in another format or you find it is not as accessible as it could be, please do get in touch.
