The official opening of the new health centre in Burntwood

A new health centre in Burntwood has been given an official opening.

The Burntwood Health and Wellbeing Centre on Chasetown High Street was opened by Alex Fox MBE, Chairman of South Staffordshire Primary Care Trust.

The centre has been developed in partnership with NHSolutions and has already been used by more than 2,000 patients.

Mr Fox said:

“The opening of the centre has created a tremendous service in what was a very under doctored area of South Staffordshire. The PCT would like to thank all the people and organisations who have been involved in this project including NHSolutions and Extra Space who completed the development ahead of schedule.

“I would also like to thank our elected members, who were instrumental in engaging with the local community, ensuring that the facilities we are offering meet their needs.”

Located on land adjacent to Burntwood Leisure Centre, the centre is open 8am to 8pm, seven days a week, 365 days a year and offers bookable appointments and a walk-in service.

Anyone in the Burntwood area can register with the GP Practice located in the centre or they can remain registered with their own practice and walk in and wait for an appointment or telephone and pre book in the new centre.

The centre is part of the PCT strategy to improve local services for patients, not only for housing GPs Practices, but also PCT Provider Services staff and Social Care, Children and Lifelong Learning and voluntary organisations.

Patients can call to pre-book an appointment on 01543 687440 or visit between 8am and 8pm, 365 days of the year.
