Barnsley NHS LIFT schemes delivered on time and on budget

Community Solutions for Primary Care ("CSPC"), a Morgan Sindall Investments joint-venture company, is pleased to announce that one of the most significant public projects in Barnsley in recent years has been completed on time and on budget.

Three Health and Social Care Centres in Barnsley have been built as part of a NHS Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) £10 million project.

The new "Super-Centres" based in Worsbrough, Thurnscoe and Goldthorpe have now all been officially handed over to Barnsley Community Solutions (BCS) a public / private partnership between the Primary Care Trust, Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Community Solutions for Primary Care and Partnerships for Health.

This innovative partnership has developed iconic designs that will help raise standards of care to new levels. Those using the buildings should be equally proud of the finished product, having had a major say in the layouts.

Tony Smith, General Manager for Barnsley Community Solutions, said, "It is a great day for our partnership and especially satisfying to be one of the first in the country to deliver this new breed of primary and community health and social care centres."
