Jo Johnson MP has welcomed the news that the commercial agreement has been finalised for the provision of services at the new Orpington Health and Wellbeing Centre.
The project is being overseen by Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group as part of their programme to improve access to healthcare across the London Borough of Bromley.
The deal represents a significant milestone in the development of the scheme, which will deliver a wide range of health services to Orpington residents. Agreements have been reached for the Health and Wellbeing Centre to house two GP surgeries, alongside a range of primary, secondary and community services, including out-patients, x-ray and ultrasound.
The Health and Wellbeing Centre is to be situated on the ground and first floors of the Berkeley Homes development, on the site of the former Orpington Police Station. The new facility is already under construction and is due to open ‘in the next couple of years’.
Jo said: ‘The finalisation of the agreement between the NHS and the parties moving into the new Health and Wellbeing Centre is an important moment in the development of this project. I would like to congratulate all those who have been involved in getting this over the line.’
‘The Centre will offer residents fantastic access to high quality healthcare in a modern setting. Situated right at the heart of our town centre, this is yet another boost to the provision of healthcare in Orpington.’
