Medical centre on former town hall site

Eric Wright Health and Care, working in partnership with Wigan Council and Wigan Borough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), has commenced the construction of a new £4 million health centre in Ashton in Makerfield, Wigan, in Greater Manchester, on the site of the former town hall.

The company acquired the site from the Council in 2015, and successfully secured planning permission in 2017, with Eric Wright Construction appointed as main contractor. On 9 November an official sod-cutting ceremony took place with local representatives from St Oswald’s Primary School, whose students prepared artwork that will decorate the site hoarding. 

When complete, the 1,100 m2 building will comprise two GP practices – The Medicentre and the Bryn Street Practice on the first floor, with the ground floor used for community services, including by integrated health and social care teams. There is also a ground floor meeting / community area. Additional features include an ambulance standby point, providing a location where crews can rest between calls, and solar panels.
