Healthwatch Wiltshire is calling on Devizes residents to have their say on the new health centre which is due to open in the town this summer.
Devizes Health Centre will be one of the region’s first integrated care centres with several organisations coming together to provide a range of health services from one building.
The new facility, currently being built on Marshall Road next to the Devizes Treatment Centre and Green Lane Hospital, is designed to give additional space for health services in the area, making it easier for patients to access the care they need locally all under one roof.
Healthcare professionals from four local GP surgeries will provide patients with same day or next day medical care, as well as routine blood tests and clinics for things like asthma and diabetes, after being referred by their own GP surgery.
Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust (RUH) will be providing outpatient services including audiology, care of the elderly, paediatrics, rheumatology and urology, while Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP) will provide some of its mental health services from the new health centre.
The arrival of the new centre will also mark the closure of Devizes Community Hospital, with services currently provided there moving to the new site.
Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (BSW CCG) has asked Healthwatch Wiltshire to find out how you would like to access services at Devizes Health Centre and what opening hours would suit you.
