Delight After Start Date For New Llanbradach Health Centre Revealed

12/02/2020

After well over a decade of delays, work will start next month (March) on the long- medical centre in Llanbradach.

Development company Apollo was appointed by the Aneurin Bevan Health Board in 2017 to design and build the centre, with two GPs practices set to welcome patients in spring 2021. It will serve around 5,000 patients.

Plaid Cymru ward councillor Colin Mann said: “Finally, after well over a decade on the drawing board, I’m delighted that the long overdue medical centre will be open in spring 2021. I’d like to thank the residents of Llanbradach for their support and perseverance over such a long time.”

Fellow Plaid Cymru ward councillor Rob Gough added: “Llanbradach will soon finally have medical facilities that are fit for the 21st century. It has been a very long time coming.”

It was in 2011 that a 500-signature petition has been presented to the Aneurin Bevan Health Board, by Plaid Cymru ward councillor Colin Mann and local residents. That came two years after a similar petition was raised calling for the old All Saints’ church site in Llanbradach to be developed for the medical centre.
