Contracts have been signed for phase 2 of Fitton Hill Neighbourhood Centre on 29th March and work is now due to start in the coming weeks. The centre, which will be known as a ‘Health and Wellbeing Centre’, is being developed by Community 1st Oldham on behalf of Hope Citadel, the primary care practice who will provide the service on behalf of the NHS. Community 1st Oldham is the Oldham LIFT company in which Equity Solutions is the private sector partner.
The new building will adjoin and fully integrate with the existing Fitton Hill Neighbourhood Centre, which opened at the end of February, and will provide GP services in a brand new, purpose-built facility. It will replace the temporary modular building on Deanshut Lane which has been housing the GP practice until a permanent facility is developed.
The new centre should be complete in early 2013. Further information will be provided once construction work commences on site.
