Labour councillors are delighted work has begun on building a new twenty first century fully integrated GP surgery and family centre complex in Mayhill.
Last December Council leader Rob Stewart and fellow Labour councillors, Cyril Anderson and Lesley Walton, along with the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress, David and Beverley Hopkins, were present for the turf-cutting ceremony at the site just off Mayhill Road.

But now the bulldozers have moved in to start work on the project which is due to be up and running in early 2018, accommodating a family centre, a GP surgery and a pharmacy with the Welsh Government contributing £567k to the family centre element of the project.
The new health centre complex is being delivered by Swansea Council in partnership with Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University (ABMU) Health Board, who will give funding for the GP surgery.
“When completed it will be able to give a lot of much needed help to the Community of Mayhill, Townhill, and The Gors,” said Cllr Anderson.
Andrew Davies, Chair of the ABMU Health Board, said: “This will address current needs and make sure the children born in this community will have access not just to healthcare but to a wide range of services.”
