Brynhyfryd Primary Care Health Centre to serve increasing number of patients
The development of a £3m new primary care health centre in the village of Brynhyfryd, Swansea, has reached completion and opened its doors to the public this week.
Developed by The Healthcare Property Company Wales (HPC Wales), the 1,290sq m, custom-built centre has been designed to meet the changing demands and serve an increasing number of patients in the local areas.
Replacing the existing surgery nearby, it contains a modern reception area, seven consultation rooms, and two treatment rooms with four GPs. It also has the facility to carry out minor operations, allowing patients to receive more of their healthcare treatment in one place.
In addition, the centre has a space for training future GPs, a Lewis Pharmacy, and improved car parking, including disabled spaces.
The new Brynhyfryd Primary Care Health Centre, in Llangyfelach Road, has been supported by the Welsh Government and developed in partnership with Brynhyfryd Surgery and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board.
“The Brynhyfryd Primary Care Health Centre is an excellent facility for the patients, doctors and staff of the health board and Brynhyfryd Surgery,” said Paul Stacey, HPC Wales managing director
We were delighted to have the opportunity to develop a modern centre which will allow more medical services to be delivered to the community of Swansea.”
The building was designed by architects, Austin-Smith:Lord; and constructed by WRW.
It has achieved a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating, and an ‘Excellent’ rating for energy efficiency.
