Plans for 19 new health and care centres across Wales announced by Vaughan Gething
Health Secretary Vaughan Gething yesterday announced plans to deliver nineteen new integrated health and care centres across Wales by 2021.
Funding of up to £68 million has been identified for the centres. Construction will be subject to the agreement of successful business cases from the local health boards, and the expectation is that all schemes will be delivered by 2021.
This is the biggest targeted investment in primary and community care infrastructure by Welsh Government.
The pipeline of facilities is intended to improve access to a range of health and social care services closer to people’s homes. The provision of a new generation of integrated health and care centres is a key commitment in Taking Wales Forward.
The pipeline of projects seeks to invest in a number of ways, and includes the refurbishment and redevelopment of existing sites, as well as a number of new build developments.
A key theme of the pipeline is integration and health boards are looking to work with a range of delivery partners, including local authorities, housing associations and the third sector, to bring together a range of public services into community hubs.
The schemes include the following :
Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board
Penclawdd Health Centre
Murton Community Clinic
Bridgend Town Centre Primary Care Centre
Swansea Wellness Centre
Aneurin Bevan University Health Board
Tredegar Health and Wellbeing Centre
Newport East Resource Centre
Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board
Central Denbighshire Clinic / Hospital Redevelopment
Waunfawr Primary Care Centre
Cardiff and Vale University Health Board

Vaughan Gething said:
“People in the 21st Century expect to be treated in modern, advanced health care centres that deliver a wide range of services all under one roof. We agree and by targeting investment in this way it is hoped that opportunities for delivering service change can be delivered upon.
“We’re funding the future of healthcare in Wales and the pipeline of projects I’m announcing today will make a significant difference to the care people receive closer to home in their communities.”
