We have been delighted recently to have two visits to our Longton Primary Care Centre Project, from the MP for Stoke-on-Trent South, Jack Brereton.
Initially Jack visited the site to report on the start of works following the Covid-19 shutdown earlier in the year. Raising the importance of the development for the surrounding area, Jack commented, “Improving health facilities in the south of the City is something I have long called for and it is fantastic to now see construction underway on the new facility.
“This new centre will massively help improve health outcomes for our local communities, bringing together GP and pharmacy services with other community-based health services, all under one roof close to the centre of the town.”
Jack’s second visit coincided with the delayed tree planting ceremony that had originally been planned to mark the start of construction. We were pleased to help facilitate the event, and it was a pleasure to meet the people who championed the provision of the new service, along with the doctors who will make the building their new home in 2021.
Lynn Millar (Director of Primary Care and Medicines Optimisation for the six Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent CCGs) and representatives of Will Bank and Longton Hall Surgeries took part in the event to talk about the new health centre.
Take a look at the video below from Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent CCGs:
Considerable progress has been made by our team and the pictures can’t show the immense amount of work that is hidden below ground level in providing new drainage systems etc including huge 130m³ of storm water attenuation. With masonry works underway on the superstructure we will be aiming to crane in the first floor before the end of November.
Look out for our future posts as the project unfolds
