Mountain View, Primary Care and Family Centre, Swansea
This is the first of its kind in Wales, a fully integrated family centre, primary care centre and pharmacy operating from the same building.
Regenerating the local area and bringing together two GP Practices into a purpose built sustainable environment built to BREEAM Excellent standard.
The integrated medical centre includes Primary Care, a pharmacy and additional self-contained rooms for separate Healthcare providers.
Developed by Ashley House and funded by Assura plc, the complex is a partnership between Swansea Council and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University (ABMU) Health Board. The Welsh Government contributed £567,000 to help deliver the family centre element of the project which provides an expanded range of services including parent and toddler groups, after-school clubs, healthy eating and nutrition courses and holiday play schemes. The impressive new building is also home to Mayhill Pharmacy whilst Citizens Advice Bureau and Women’s Aid will be running services from the centre.
What we did
The brand new state of the art Mountain View Centre in Mayhill, will give residents access to expanded family services, top class health care, as well as courses and activities that will make a real difference to their lives. It replaces the old and outdated family centre on Mayhill Road and is the new home for the Mayhill GP surgery.
“Thousands of children and their families have benefited from the old children’s centre over the years and now that the service has moved into these new modern surroundings The Mountain View Family Centre will ensure even more will get a great start to life. This is yet another great example of Swansea Council working with our partners at ABMU and the Welsh Government, together with the private sector, for the benefit of Swansea residents. I’d urge all residents in Mayhill to call in over the coming weeks because they will find the high quality services and facilities here, which are all under one roof, will be of great benefit whatever their age.”
Cllr Rob Stewart, Swansea Council Leader
“I am particularly delighted to see this community health centre opening. Mayhill was at the heart of my constituency when I was the Assembly Member for Swansea West. I know this new health centre has long been the ambition of the local community, and it has been a personal ambition of mine too. Through the collaborative efforts of the health board and local authority we have introduced a new way of providing services by bringing them together in a state-of-the-art community hub.”
Andrew Davies, ABM University Health Board chairman
“This is a fantastic centre, providing a whole range of services for the local community. Mountain View Health Centre is a great example of how good collaboration can improve services for the people who use them.”
