We’re really pleased that NHS services feature as part of the plans for a new multi-million pound Community Hub in Codsall.
The hub will be built in the grounds of the existing South Staffordshire Council offices in Codsall. The present building will be refurbished and extended and it is planned that Russell House GP Surgery will move in, providing the practice with much needed additional space to expand the number of GPs for the community’s growing population.
Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s community outreach teams are due to be relocated to the building, which will also encompass a café, library, three tiers of government, retail and the police.
As part of the local government move, South Staffordshire Council’s physical and mental health, children’s and social care, housing and benefit teams will also be brought together into an integrated space at the Community Hub, enabling service transformation and delivering a swifter triage of services for those working with the district’s most vulnerable residents.
Overall, seven public sector buildings will be integrated into one, saving £1.7m in running costs and creating an income generating building for the council, securing its long-term future.
We look forward to supporting the council on this exciting development for the local community.
