Residents of the Crymych area will benefit from a new Community Resource Centre this summer.
The local health board says the new facility on the Old Mart Site in Crymych will be a significant improvement for patients who are currently seen by GPs in a temporary building.
The Bro Preseli Community Resource Centre is being developed by Hywel Dda University Health Board in partnership with Pembrokeshire County Council, the Preseli Peaks Practice and Family Housing Association as part of their Extra Care Development.
The development includes a new GP surgery as well as facilities for University Health Board staff such as midwives, health visitors, district nurses and therapists.
One of the main benefits of the facility will mean healthcare staff will be on the same site as social services staff which will result in more joined up working and better overall care for patients.
Members of the project board, established at the outset of the development, recently visited the site.
County Director for Pembrokeshire and Project Director for the University Health Board development, Sue Lewis said: “The development is progressing well, the GPs, staff and Community Health Council (CHC) have been involved throughout the build to ensure the residents of Crymych get the best possible facility.”
CHC project board member Pamela Parsons, added: "This new development should be promoted far and wide as a 'flagship' model, essentially as an excellent example of GP/Primary, Social Care and Housing working collaboratively for the future needs of the patients and community of Crymych and its wide catchment area."
