Community hospital upgrade20th December 2007
The Department of Health has announced a wave of refurbishments and improvements to community hospitals across England as part of a £750m package first unveiled in July 2006.
Under the next £132m phase, existing buildings will be rebuilt or refurbished to provide a range of integrated primary care and community services from surgery to smoking cessation services. In one scheme the DoH is putting £3 million towards building a ‘super surgery’ in Hartlepool, Teesside, to house a GP surgery, walk-in service for minor injuries and illness, as well as maternity and diagnostic services.
