Primary care centre to doors in Mountain Ash

Written by on 24th March 2021

A brand-new primary care centre will open its doors in Mountain
Ash next Monday, bringing modern healthcare services to the local
community.


The £4m facility, named Tŷ Calon Lān, will become home to the newly
merged GP practice, Meddygfa Glan Cynon Surgery (formerly Cynon
Vale Medical Centre and Rhos House Surgery), delivering GP services
to over 11,000 patients in the area.
A number of community services will also be based at the building,
including the district nursing and health visitor teams.


Dr Nicola Mogford, GP Partner at Meddygfa Glan Cynon Surgery, said:
“We are overjoyed that the development of Tŷ Calon Lān is now
complete despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. The
new building will provide purpose built, modern facilities which will allow
us to expand our existing services and provide high quality care to the
population of the area.”


As well as community led clinics such as wound care, the facilities will
also provide a health education room for baby massage and breast-

feeding clinic, minor operations room, and space for enhanced health
and wellbeing services.


Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board secured funding for the
project which was approved by the Welsh Government in 2017. The
project was delivered by Developer Apollo Capital Projects.
