|Putney Hospital development full steam ahead|
after receiving go ahead by Wandsworth Teaching PCT Board
The redevelopment of the Putney Hospital site into a modern primary care centre was given the go ahead yesterday at Wandsworth Teaching PCT’s Board meeting.
The project team will continue to meet with Wandsworth Council planners, stakeholders, local residents, the Government Office for London and the Greater London Authority over the coming months to put together the planning application which will be submitted in May 2006. The project team hope to gain planning approval by August 2006. Following planning approval, access rights to the site need to be resolved with Wimbledon & Putney Common Conservators by way of either an easement or a Compulsory Purchase Order. The new centre will be up and running by early 2009.
The new primary care centre, which is going to be built on the site of the former hospital, would include GP surgeries, a pharmacy, physiotherapy, chiropody, health visiting, district nursing and a wide variety of other services for the local community.
