Construction starts on new Akerman Road health centre

Construction has started on the new Akerman Road health centre in Vassall Ward, Lambeth SW9.

This new state of the art facility is being built by NHS Lambeth and will bring together three existing local doctors' practices - Myatts Fields, Foxley Square and Iveagh House.
As well as medical services the new facility will also house a Lambeth Council adult and childrens services team and dental services provided by King's College Hospital allowing greater joint working between health and social services. It will also feature a meeting space for community use.

Construction of the new health centre is expected to be completed in July 2012 with pateint services starting to be provided shortly afterwards.

NHS Lambeth recently held a meeting for local people to outline the construction process and answer any questions that they had - download the presentation for further information.
