GPI are delighted to announce that construction has now commenced on the new primary care resource centre in Brynmawr. The state of the art facility, has been designed to integrate primary, community and social care services into a modern fit for purpose medical hub.
The 1786 m2 state of the art health care facility will accommodate three GP Practices, a dentist, a pharmacy and the Aneurin Bevan Health Board, serving approximately 25,000 patients in total. The GP surgeries involved with the scheme have also agreed to merge into one partnership following completion. This agreement has been reached following several years of negotiation with the existing GPs. Within the building, office space has been allocated to the Aneurin Bevan Health Board who will provide various community and social care services, whilst both a dentist and a pharmacy will be integrated on-site, enabling patients to access a wide range of NHS services from a single location.
The new primary care resource centre will feature 11 consulting rooms, 2 GP training rooms, 2 Phlebotomy rooms, 3 treatment suits and a 20m2 minor ops room, representing what will be a significant improvement in health care provision that will vastly improve the patient experience. In addition, 58 parking spaces will be provided for patients, whilst a further 32 parking spaces will be designated for staff.
Roger Serginson, GPI’s Regional Development Director commented:
