May opening for Brierley Hill health and social care centre

John Coyne, Dudley LIFT CEO

Brierley Hill’s new health and social care centre is still on track to open in May.

 The new building on Venture Way Brierley Hill is nearing completion despite the recent bad weather having hampered operations by construction company Carillion.

 Chief Executive of Dudley Infracare Lift, John Coyne, told the most recent meeting of Brierley Hill Town Centre Partnership:

 “Inevitably the snow  over recent weeks has meant some of the work on the site is delayed.  However I am confident that any lost time will be made up and the health centre will be opening on time in May.”

 The new £27 million award winning health and social care centre is the biggest of its kind in the country and will provide integrated services for three GP practices consisting of 10 GPs serving 14,000 patients, three dental surgeries, audiology, chiropody and leg ulcer services together with providing a new home for local council social services staff.

  1. Dear Sir/Madam

    My name is Emelie and I am currently in the developing esteemed Awards for primary care professionals. Through recommendations from other professionals in the medical industry, based on the high quality of service provided, I have been asked to forward you some information regarding our annual Management in Practice awards. It would be a shame to miss this opportunity to bring to light strong cases of good practice as you will no doubt make strong candidates for our awards.

    The Management in Practice Award winners will be announced on the 20 October 2010 at our annual events before their peers. I would like to invite you to take part in this award dedicated to appreciation and recognition of the hard work by submitting success stories for the awards. The entries can be submitted by anyone, so entries and recommendations can be nominated by others in the medical profession.

    The awards are in place to promote a positive message of good practice and innovation to demonstrate support for the practice managers, and primary care nurses whose hard work over the past 18 months can be publicly recognised. It is therefore important for us to reach out to professionals who have been brought to our attention and encourage them to submit their entries.

    The awards are free to enter and since it was first launched two years ago the level of interest has grown by the year and we are very optimistic about the quality of entries we shall be receiving. There will be a formal interview process with the judges and the winners will be announced at the award ceremony it self. Not only will the winners receive well earned recognition from their peers, there will also be a significant amount of coverage in our Management in Practice publications, the opportunity to share their work at future events, a cash reward of £250 and be presented with a trophy. All applications must be submitted no later than 5.30pm on the 21 may 2010.

    I look forward to your feedbacks and if you do submit your entry for this year’s awards, I wish you all the best of luck.

    Kind regards
