South Liverpool health centres stay on schedule for 2011

Liverpool Primary Care Trust : 25 March, 2010  (Company News)
Two key health facilities being constructed in South Liverpool, that will provide improved and more accessible services, remain on schedule for completion in 2011.
Work commenced on the construction of the NHS Treatment Centre in Garston and the Speke Neighbourhood Health Centre in the autumn, and despite the harsh winter both are on schedule. The facilities form part of Liverpool Primary Care Trust’s plans for a ‘New Health Service for Liverpool,’ which sees millions of pounds being invested across the city and will transform the way services are delivered.

Visiting the site, Gideon Ben Tovim, Chair of Liverpool PCT said: “It is great to see these buildings beginning to take shape and I am delighted that they are not only on schedule but also being delivered to budget. In the current economic climate it is more important than ever to ensure that we demonstrate cost efficiency and value for money”.

“Once completed these facilities will radically improve the city’s access to healthcare and form part of our wider commitment to provide the most effective, appropriate and convenient services for the people of Liverpool.”

The NHS Treatment Centre replaces the Sir Alfred Jones Memorial Hospital and forms a key part of Liverpool Primary Care Trust’s plans to enable more care to be delivered outside of hospitals. The organisation has been working hard with the developers to ensure best practice and to make savings on the original £15.5 million costing.

When complete in 2011, the development will offer the people of Liverpool a much wider range of services than were previously delivered from the site. Two GP practices will move into the building and services will also include; an X-ray and walk-in centre, out patients clinics, community dentistry, diabetic care; and physiotherapy as well as a new pharmacy and community cafe.

Work is also on schedule for Speke Neighbourhood Health centre, which is being built next to the current Speke Health Centre and will open in the autumn. The new centre will be a much larger facility and will offer a greater range of services including diagnostics, dental services, chiropody and smoking cessation.

Both developments are being delivered by Liverpool and Sefton Health Partnership, a partnership harnessing the skills of both the public and private sector to deliver 21st century healthcare facilities. The building has been designed to a high environmental standard and, despite being three times the size of the existing building, will have a smaller carbon footprint and much improved energy efficiency.

Graham Pink, Chief Executive of Liverpool and Sefton Health Partnership said: “”We are delighted to be delivering these important projects for Liverpool PCT, which will contribute to the health and wellbeing of the people in Liverpool in a way that is conducive to what people should expect of their healthcare buildings.”
