Farnborough residents turned out in huge numbers for the chance to visit the town’s future Centre for Health and learn about the services that will be based there.
Over 500 people came to the building, in Apollo Rise, to view displays and speak with representatives from organisations concerned. Their comments and feedback will be used to help shape services and access to them.
As well as North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), there were GPs and other healthcare professionals, architects, medical equipment fitters and representatives from bus operator Stagecoach, to address travel links.
The building was bought by Rushmoor Borough Council on the CCG’s behalf earlier this year and refitting is due to begin in the early autumn, with a view to opening next summer. It will house one of Farnborough’s GP practices - Voyager Family Health - as well as other services that will support the broader Farnborough population, such as the Integrated Care Team, midwives and Talking Therapies.
