The Wilberforce Health Centre
HLM’s £16 million health and well-being centre in Hull has started on site.
The Wilberforce Health Centre will provide facilities for a walk in GP service for both registered and non-registered patients every day of the year and is due for completion in late 2011.
Also included in the design are sexual health care facilities and a public café.
Neil Orpwood at HLM Architects added: “Our design integrates with the community and the urban grain, providing potential for night time use, linking to its surroundings, and making the most of the site in terms of functionality, sustainability and views to and from the site.”
It is being created through a public private partnership between NHS Hull, construction company Sewell Group, Community Health Partnerships and The UME Group for Primary Care Trust NHS Hull as part of Hull’s LIFT programme.
