Finch Road Primary Care Centre
Finch Road, Birmingham, United Kingdom
Two GP practices/Heart of Birmingham Teaching Primary Care Trust
Lozells and East Handsworth is one of Birmingham’s most deprived and ethnically diverse wards.
The Finch Road scheme from Birmingham and Solihull LIFT (BaS LIFT) was an opportunity to bring investment into the area and create a building in which the community could take pride. As well as ground floor capacity for two general practices, each serving 5,000 patients, the centre brings together psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers from Birmingham’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAHMS) onto one site for the first time.
With spacious and bright waiting areas, generous provision of consulting and treatment rooms, and a pharmacy, the new building has been welcomed by patient groups and the wider community as a first step in the regeneration of Lozells.”
