A new £3million community health centre is due to open in early 2016 in Dinas Powys in South Wales.

The primary care centre will deliver essential and enhanced primary care services to 10,000 residents in a modern, high quality, primary care facility.

The new centre is an important part of Cardiff and Vale's University Health Board's overall strategy for refocusing care so that it is provided in the community and is as close to patients as possible.

Professor Marcus Longley, the Health Board's vice chair, said: 'We are delighted that work has started on this brand new purpose-built centre. This project marks a significant step in the development of primary and community healthcare in Cardiff and Vale, and will provide the local community with a first class health facility.'

Dr Thomas & Partners, an existing GP practice, will relocate from the existing health care centre built in 1971. The current building has limited expansion of new services but the new development will help to expand the support the centre can offer to the community.

Dr Sue Thomas, senior partner at the practice, said: 'This development is more than 10 years in the making and it is great to see it taking shape. It will mean the people of Dinas Powys will have a state-of-the-art health facility which will allow a greater range of health services to be delivered to the local community.'
