Work is continuing to refurbish and extend a health centre in Pudsey in a bid to meet growing patient demand.
Over the past five years Robin Lane Health and Wellbeing Centre has seen patient numbers grow from 8,500 to more than 13,500.
Once complete in autumn, the ground floor extension will provide an additional seven clinical rooms to support this growing practice’s patient list.
The refurbishment will upgrade seven existing clinical rooms, reconfigure the treatment suite to include a minor operations suite and provide an enhanced reception and waiting area.
Mev Forbes, managing partner at Robin Lane Health and Wellbeing Centre, said the aim was to provide more urgent care in the community. He said:
“Our vision has always been to offer the highest quality primary health care to our patients here in Pudsey, and to enable them to live longer and healthier lives. We know that this can only be achieved by taking a proactive approach to healthcare services in the local community, focused on preventative solutions as well as treatments.
“With the support of Octopus Healthcare, and the redevelopment project, we will be able to make a real difference to patient outcomes and the health of our community.”
