The new Kirkholt health centre is half way through completion having recently been made watertight by builders Nu Construction who are on track to complete the building on schedule by April next year. The new build is located close to the RBH Kirkholt Strand regeneration project and will be able to offer services to more than 6,000 local people.
The new £2.3 million facility has been commissioned by NHS Heywood, Middleton & Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group (HMR CCG) and developed by One Partnership in conjunction with Eric Wright Health and Care. The centre will provide a variety of health and community services for Kirkholt residents in premises which are fit for the future.
The 550sq m, two story building will house a range of GP led primary care services provided by Kirkholt Medical Practice who will move from their current temporary premises.
Amy Yates will be practice manager of the new centre. She currently manages the Kirkholt practice in it’s temporary home and is looking forward to the space and modern surroundings that the new centre will offer. She said: “The new accommodation will be worlds away from the premises that the practice works from presently. It will be a massive improvement for patients and practice staff alike. We will also be able to offer clinical services to more patients, so we are welcoming any new patients who wish to register with us, either before we move to the new site or once we are in settled in. Just ask at reception for a registration form.”
