Good news for the people of Darnall as the plans for the new Darnall Community Health Centre were approved at a planning committee on 2 November 2009.
Construction is now expected to begin in early 2010 with the facilities complete and open to the public in spring 2011.
The development is being delivered by Community 1st Sheffield as part of NHS Sheffield’s investment in the LIFT (Local Improvement Finance Trust) programme and demonstrates NHS Sheffield’s ongoing investment in health and community facilities for the people of Sheffield.
The new centre will be located on Main Road, Darnall and will replace the existing Darnall Community Health services in Darnall Road and York Road which have outgrown their premises as patient list sizes have grown.
The state-of-the art facility will allow NHS Sheffield and the staff from Darnall Community Health service to continue to deliver a high quality service to the local community and to develop these further from a bigger building with better access and modern therapy and treatment facilities.
