The £8.4million development on Belfield Road, which will be a hub for children’s services, will be the fourth new health centre to open in the borough as part of NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale’s plans to improve access to local health services and bring care much closer to patients’ homes. 

John Pierce, Chairman at NHS HMR said: “Building work on the new centre is progressing exceptionally well. This week we’ve had a sneak preview inside and you can see from the pictures just how impressive it looks. We look forward to getting the keys towards the end of the year so we can begin moving services in ready for our patients to benefit in the New Year.” 

Building work is due to be completed in November with services beginning to move in early 2010. 

Services at the new centre include: 

Audiology, Child Development Unit, Children’s Community Team, Children’s Physiotherapy, Children’s Occupational Therapy, Community Dentistry, Dental practice (Dr Ko’s from Baillie Street Health Centre), District Nurse Treatment Room, GP Practice (Dr Babar’s from Baillie Street Health Centre), Leg ulcer assessment, Orthoptics, Opthalmology Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service (for eyes), Podiatry, Psychological therapies, base for Health Visitors, School Health Practitioners and District Nursing Team, Sexual Health and Contraceptive Services, Speech and language therapy.

Came across your blog whilst trying to locate the Wardleworth & Hamer Health Centre and have unfortunately realised that the Primary Care Trust have overlooked the displaying of a map or pinpointing the location of the centre on any web based resources. £8.4 million but I can’t see any building on Belfield Road, using google street view, that looks like a health centre let alone cost £8.4 million to build. Oh dear, looks like I will miss my appointment.
