Give your views on Mold health centre proposals

MOLD residents have the chance to find out more and give their views about a proposed new primary health care centre that has been designed to accommodate two GP practices, a pharmacy and specialist nurses.

Flintshire Local Health Board, in conjunction with development company Apollo Capital Projects of Leeds, is behind plans for the new centre in Glanrafon Road. Subject to securing planning consent and funding approval from the Welsh Assembly Government, the 13,000 sq ft building – about a quarter of the size of a standard football pitch, over two floors – will have a frontage onto the New Street (Somerfield supermarket) car park.

People interested in the development, and what it will mean to them in terms of future GP services, are invited to an open day at the Daniel Owen Centre in Mold on Wednesday, May 6, to see plans for the centre, discuss the proposals with representatives from Flintshire Local Health Board, the developers and the architects, and voice their opinions.

Those available to provide information will include Paul Bowker, Flintshire Local Health Board’s Head of Primary Care Services; Richard Drew, Development Director from Apollo Capital Projects; and Ewan Dryburgh and Barry Prince from the project’s architects, Shrewsbury-based DGA.

The plan is for two existing Mold GP practices to move into the new building as tenants – the Grosvenor St and Bradleys practices, known respectively as Dr Beckett’s, which currently has premises in Grosvenor Street, and Dr Hoggins and Partners, currently located in Griffiths Square. A pharmacy and a team of chronic disease nurses from the LHB would also be accommodated.

Wednesday’s open day has two sessions – one from 10am to 4pm and an evening session from 5.30-7.30pm.

Construction of the new centre could start next spring, with completion in the spring of 2011.
