Barnsley PCT Newsletter No.38 | May 2008

The PCT and its LIFT partners celebrated the opening of the PCT’s fourth LIFT building in Barnsley last month.

Practice Manager Diana Wells officially opened the new building in Grimethorpe, cutting the ribbon followed by speeches from local MP Jeff Ennis and music from Grimethorpe Colliery Band.

Prior to the official opening, the Grimethorpe building also won an award for regeneration (see page 8 for more news on the award). Jeff Ennis, MP for Barnsley East and Mexborough said: “I have a real attachment for this area, having worked at the former Grimethorpe Colliery myself and am therefore delighted to be involved with the opening of a facility that will surely breathe even more life into the community.”

PCT Chairman Tom Sheard added: “The opening marks an important day for the people of Grimethorpe and for all the people who have worked hard on the new building. 

We are very proud to open this LIFT Centre on behalf of Grimethorpe’s community. As both a provide and commissioner of local healthcare, the Primary Care Trust’s priority is to ensure people are able to access their health services in an environment which is clean, modern and fit for the job. Not only does the new Grimethorpe LIFT Centre allow us to do this, but it will also bring some services much closer to home for patients, making easier, faster access to a wide range of high quality healthcare that is much more convenient too.”
