New health centre for Little Hulton

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.

    Hi Claire,
    The new centre is going to be built on Longshaw Drive on the land adjacent to the current Little Hulton health centre. As the development continues, we will share plans/visuals to keep the local community in the loop as much as we can.

    July 2018 was the date announced for when building work was due to commence but so far there has been no sign of activity. Can anyone give an update on when it will commence?

    Hi Rob,
    It will happen but, as can happen with any building project, there has been a short delay and it's now going to start in the autumn.
