The area's new medical centre is right at the heart of it - helping to put primary care on the map for all the right reasons. Serving almost 6,800 patients, West Gorton Medical Centre works in a part of the country facing huge health challenges. The practice's former run-down premises were right at the heart of the community. While the physical journey to its new building Clowes Street was less than half a mile, the goal was to create a space for primary care that was worlds away from the cramped and ageing home it had outgrown long ago.
This is such an important step for our practice - the whole of this area has been remodelled and regenerated and there's lots more housing to go up so we will have more patients coming through our doors -we need a modern space and facilities to look after them
