A NEW £8.5million health complex has opened in Birmingham’s inner city, transforming healthcare for more than 12,000 people.

Richmond Primary Care Centre at Bordesley Green East, Stechford, includes various health services under one roof.

NHS Birmingham East and North Primary Care Trust is responsible for the centre, which has the new Iridium Medical Practice, following the merger of four local GPs practices, plus dentists, health visitors and physiotherapy and podiatry departments.

Ann Pursey, chief executive of Birmingham and Solihull Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT), which has been involved in regenerating the health centre, said: “We are very pleased to be involved in the delivery of another major new community facility.

“Not only will it dramatically improve the patient experience and provide a new building, but we are confident it will also contribute positively to the wider regeneration of this part of Stechford.”

The health centre, which is has an antiviral collection point for swine flu patients on one side of the car park, will be open from 8am to 8.30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and until 6.30pm on Tuesday and Thursdays.
