Apollo are delighted to report that the Mountain Ash Primary Care Centre scheme is finally progressing. Appointed in 2013, Apollo made steady progress until the scheme was put on hold while a new funding system was agreed between Welsh Government and Cwm Taf University Health Board. In February of 2018 the funding was approved and the project board re-formed to commence the works. Apollo have secured a site in the centre of Mountain Ash from the Local Council and hope to submit for planning at the beginning of 2019. The scheme brings together all 4 historic practices in the town and will also include several community teams including health visitors and district nurses. The 4 GP practices have now become 2, Rhos House and Cynon Vale and between them look after over 12,000 patients in the region.
Rob James, Apollo’s Managing Director and project lead for developing Mountain Ash said, “We are delighted to be working on Mountain Ash once again and are looking forward to working with the Health Board and Practices to deliver this important centre for the region”. Rob James is based in the Cardiff office and lives only 4 miles from the Mountain Ash scheme site so working locally will make a refreshing change.
