BELLSHILL’S brand new £4.5 million Community Health Clinic was officially opened on Monday 16 March by Michael McMahon MSP.

The clinic, on Greenmoss Place, near Main Street, provides a wide range of health services in a state of the art, modern facility and replaces the existing Bellshill Health Clinic on Main Street.

Mr McMahon, who received a guided tour and unveiled an official plaque, praised the new clinic.

The MSP for Hamilton North and Bellshill, said: “This is a wonderful facility which was badly needed in this area.

“The former health centre was much valued by the local community but it was clearly past its sell-by date.

“This sends out a positive message that NHS Lanarkshire is prioritising the provision of first class care in the primary care setting.

“In the past the NHS was considered as a safety net to care for people when they were ill.

“Now it’s just as important to promote healthy living to reduce the likelihood of people becoming ill in the first place and centres like this will have a major part to play in local communities in Scotland.”

Bellshill Community Health Clinic accommodates public health nursing, long term conditions nursing, podiatry, speech and language therapy, community dental services and a range of mental health services.

NHS Lanarkshire’s chairman, Ken Corsar, said: “Through consultations with local communities one of the major issues people highlighted was the need for improved facilities and accessibility to primary care and to mental health services.

“The NHS Lanarkshire Board listened to this message and approved a £108 million building programme to provide eight new NHS properties in Lanarkshire.

“I am delighted to be present at the official opening of the first of these eight facilities.

“This new Bellshill Community Health Clinic will help NHS Lanarkshire provide the people of Bellshill with the highest standard of care.”

Patients have been enjoying the new facilities at Bellshill Community Clinic since it first opened its doors on December 15.

NHS Lanarkshire’s Bellshill locality manager, Tom Bryce, said: “The new centre is already making a huge difference to staff and patients.

“Being a purpose built facility means ease of access for patients is first class and the staff are enjoying working in such pleasant surroundings.

“The new clinic will help to improve the health outcomes for the people of Bellshill and will allow us to provide the very latest and highest standard of care.”

Services provided at the new clinic include: podiatry, speech and language therapy, child immunisation and surveillance, physiotherapy, dietetics, well woman clinic, antenatal, adult mental health services, community dental services, minor surgery, cervical screening, coronary heart disease surveillance, long term condition, counselling, public health team and health promotion, EVA (ending violence and abuse) project.
