Plans for new health centre to be unveiled

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board says it will be presenting the plans for the proposed new Llangollen Health Centre on Tuesday, June 11 in the first floor hall of Llangollen Town Hall between 3pm and 6.30pm. 
 
The board says the new centre will be constructed on the former River Lodge site on the A539 to Trevor and will be shared between the Llangollen GP practice, the board itself, Denbighshire County Council social care and voluntary sector services. 
 
A board spokesperson said: "A wide range of services will be provided from the centre such as GP services, community nursing and midwifery services, outpatient clinics, therapies, mental health care services and social care.
 
"Members of the public are warmly invited to view the plans and make comments on them.  Health Board and Llangollen GP practice representatives will be on hand with the architects to respond to questions about the plans. 
 
"There is a lift to the first floor hall in the Town Hall."


Welcoming the plan, Clwyd South Assembly Member Ken Skates said: “I warmly welcome the plans being put together by the local health board for a new health centre in Llangollen.  The town has desperately needed a new primary care facility for some time and the initial outline of the new centre looks very good indeed.
 
“Importantly the new centre will house a wide range of facilities, from a new GP surgery to improved mental health support and midwifery services.  This is exactly what the town needs and I’m in full support of what the health board are trying to achieve.
 
“In addition, these plans will also hopefully draw a line under the sorry saga of the River Lodge site and ensure something good comes out of this mess. 
 
“Local people have rightly been angered by the amount of money that has been wasted on the proposed Kung Fu Centre up this point.  This new Health Centre is a much better use of public money and I’m looking forward to having it up and running in the near future.”
