Green Wrythe Lane Health Centre in Carshalton is celebrating its 15th anniversary this summer, with the building providing vital health and social care services to local residents and the NHS since it first opened in the summer of 2006. As part of the anniversary, Carshalton and Wallington MP Elliot Colburn visited the health centre today to meet staff and see some of the key services it offers to the local community.
The three-storey healthcare building was built in 2006 to bring together a range of health and social care services all under one roof to help meet the needs of the growing local population.
Services at Green Wrythe Lane Health Centre
- GP surgery
- Dental Surgery which supports local residents who cannot access or cannot afford dental treatment, including children, those with special needs, and elderly residents in care homes
- Children’s Health Services including Speech & Language and Physiotherapy
- Midwifery and Family Planning services
- A Care Home Support Team, COVID administration team, and a Call Centre that acts as the main hub to coordinate the many services on offer at the building, helping manage the referrals process and the booking of appointments
Green Wrythe Lane Health Centre was delivered under the NHS Local Improvement Finance Trust (NHS LIFT) programme which brings together the private and public sectors to deliver quality health and community facilities. This year marks 20 years since the NHS LIFT Programme first started with Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently praising “all the major benefits the NHS LIFT initiative and LIFT companies have brought to improving and modernising local primary and community health facilities in the NHS”. Mr Colburn’s visit was arranged as part of a programme of activity to mark the 20th anniversary of the NHS LIFT programme, organised by The LIFT Council, the representative body for NHS LIFTCos in England.
Green Wrythe Lane was built by South West London Health Partnerships which includes investment partner Fulcrum, and Community Health Partnerships – a key part of the NHS family.
After visiting Green Wrythe Lane health centre, MP for Carshalton and Wallington Elliot Colburn said:
“It was great to be invited to take part in these 15th-anniversary celebrations at Green Wrythe Lane! I want to thank and pay tribute to the incredible team for the work that they do, and I look forward to celebrating all the future successes that Green Wrythe Lane will no doubt have!”
