The new Chirk health centre will bring ‘huge benefits’ to the area, says Clwyd South Assembly Member Ken Skates.
The Labour AM visited the site of the under-construction surgery on Colliery Road on Friday, March 14, to hear more about its state-of-the-art facilities from the developers.
Mr Skates said: “Building work is progressing well and the centre should be completed in the next few weeks as planned. I have been a keen supporter of the project since the outset, and believe it will bring huge benefits to the area once fully operational.”
The new two-storey eco-friendly centre will replace Chirk Surgery’s current premises in Castle Road and will feature a number of sophisticated ‘green’ features, including solar panels and an advanced drainage system.
Mr Skates added: “The centre will also offer a minor operations facility and a pharmacy. It will be a major boost for Chirk and will offer residents first class medical treatment in a modern, purpose-built and spacious environment fit for the 21st century.”
On Friday Mr Skates also visited Chirk Community Hospital.
He said: “The staff at the hospital do a fantastic job serving the community, including the employees of major companies like Kronospan and Mondelez/Cadbury’s and the many tourists who visit Chirk every year.”
