New home for Bryn Street Surgery
SSP Health's Bryn Street Surgery is moving home and will be opening in the newly built Ashton Health Centre.
Its opening hours and telephone number are the same and it will have the same staff and GPs.
The new building – on the corner of Bryn Street and Council Avenue where Ashton Town Hall once stood – will the base for Bryn Street Surgery, on the first-floor alongside another GP practice, and there is a community services clinic on the ground floor.
We will have a new computer and telephone system, which will be much more responsive than our last one, but please bear with us while we get everything running properly.
The colourful interior of the building has walls which reflect Ashton’s history – with art created from old street scenes – as well as its future, with murals taken from work by pupils at the nearby primary school.
Our new Bryn Street Surgery will have six consulting rooms, an increase from the 4/5 that the practice has now, and a comfortable reception area with TV screens and a digital sign-in system.
Environmental considerations have meant that 60 percent of the building's roof space has solar panels which generate electricity that is fed directly into the centre.
The building has full disabled access and disabled toilets as well as meeting rooms and training areas for clinicians, staff and community groups.
Our Patient Participation Group was shown around the new building several weeks ago.
Practice Manager Vicky Winstanley said: “We are a looking forward to finally moving into the building after watching it take shape over many months. It is a wonderful facility for Ashton and our patients.
“I and all our staff at SSP Health will be working hard to ensure everything runs smoothly during the transition to our new home.”
