A new £4.6m health centre in the heart of Little Hulton has been given the go-ahead.
NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has approved plans for the facility to be built on Longshaw Drive, on land adjacent to the current Little Hulton health centre.
It will bring together podiatry, speech and language therapy and diabetes clinics along with a stop smoking and mental health services.
Four GP practices – Salford Health Matters, Dearden Avenue Medical Practice, Manchester Road East Medical Practice and Cherry Medical Practice – will use the state-of-the-art centre, which will serve around 13,000 people.
Dr Tom Tasker, chair of NHS Salford CCG, said: “Throughout the development of these plans, the CCG and the GP practices have been speaking to the local community about what they want from health and wellbeing services in the area and we’ve listened to those views.
“This new health centre will give people living in Little Hulton access to high quality, integrated services in modern and purpose-built surroundings, as well as bringing more hospital services into the community.”
Work will begin in July 2018 and the centre is expected to open to patients in June 2019.
