A TOWN’S multi-million pound health centre is taking shape.

Clwyd South AM Ken Skates enjoyed a sneak-preview of the new facility in Chirk and said he believes it will bring “huge benefits” to the town.

He was joined by local county councillors Terry Evans and Ian Roberts during the visit to the under-construction site.

Mr Skates said: “Building work is progressing well and the centre should be completed in the next few weeks as planned.

“I have been a keen supporter of the project since the outset, and believe it will bring huge benefits to the area once fully operational.”

The new two-storey eco-friendly centre will replace Chirk Surgery’s premises in Castle Road and will feature a number of sophisticated ‘green’ features, including solar panels and an advanced drainage system.

Mr Skates added: “The centre will also offer a minor operations facility and a pharmacy. It will be a major boost for Chirk and will offer residents first class medical treatment in a modern, purpose-built and spacious environment fit for the 21st century.”

Following the visit Mr Skates visited Chirk Community Hospital to meet staff and the volunteer-run circle of friends.

He said: “The staff at the hospital and its minor injuries unit do a fantastic job serving the community, including the employees of major companies like Kronospan and Mondelez/Cadbury and the many tourists who visit Chirk every year.

It was great to see the volunteers from the league of friends again.

“They are constantly fundraising to help maintain and improve the facilities and are a credit to the area.”
