BRAHM LIFT - Wardleworth & Hamer Health Centre Open Day

Rochdale residents are being invited to take a look around their new state-of-the-art heath centre in Wardleworth and Hamer... and get a free health check while they're there!

A fun-packed open day is being held from 11am to 3pm on Saturday 27th March at the new centre on Belfield Road. It will give many people the chance to see the modern facilities that are now available on their doorstep.

Visitors will be able to get their groove on with dance mat competitions as well as getting fit with rowing and bike races, with the support of Rochdale Borough-wide Cultural Trust; Link4Life.

John Pierce, Chair of NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale encouraged everyone to come along and see what's on offer: "This fantastic development has been built for the people of Rochdale and we want to encourage them to get the most out of it."

Visitors will also be able to find out more about all the services in the new centre as well as picking up top tips for living a healthy lifestyle, including eating well, getting active and quitting smoking.

"I hope everyone will take up our invite to come down to the open day to have a look around and see how the services can benefit them," adds John.

The new £8.4m centre, built in conjunction with BRAHM LIFTCo and NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochedale, has a focus on children's services, opened to patients in January. The centre houses a wide range of services as well as relocating Dr Ko's dental practice and Dr Babar's GP surgery from Baillie Street health centre.
