NHS Developments in Oldham
First Schemes to be Developed
Planning and design work is currently being undertaken to replace the existing
Crompton Health Centre, located at High Street, Shaw, Oldham, OL2 8ST.
Figure 1 shows the existing Crompton Health Centre
Crompton Health Centre is located in Shaw, approximately four kilometres
north of Oldham town. It provides accommodation for two GP practices
and a range of additional teams. The centre was
built in the 1960’s
and is in poor condition both internally and externally. It is flat-roofed
with single-glazed timber windows. The space inside is poorly designed
and offers no potential for service expansion.
The LIFT scheme will alleviate these problems by providing a newly built health centre, bringing together medical, nursing, therapy and social care services.
The aim is to complete this development by 2007.
