- While Stephenson Bell also gets cracking in the city - images

  • Comment
Work has started on Stephenson Bell's new £6.5 million medical centre in New Islington, east Manchester.

The two-storey, 2,300m 2facility in Old Mill Street will be one of the largest health clinics in Manchester and will help serve around 7,000 new households which will be built as part of the city's Millennium Community programme.

Overlooking the new water park, the clinic is to replace the current Ancoats clinic and will house two of the area's key GP practices as well as a pharmacy, a minor injuries unit and mental health services.

The health centre scheme is part of the ongoing LIFT (Local Improvement Finance Trust) programme to reform primary healthcare services in Manchester and Salford.

'The new facility will mean our healthcare staff can provide the most modern and up-to-date services for people and really help people to live healthier lives,' said David King, chief executive of North Manchester Primary Care Trust.

'For too long, residents in this part of Manchester have experienced some of the worst health and we want to change this.'

The centre is due to open its doors in October 2007.
