Minister Jane Hutt at Llangollen Health Centre.
The Minister was visiting Llangollen on Thursday to see how £5.2 million capital funding from the Welsh Government has helped develop the new facility.
The Health Centre has been established to enable Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, the Llangollen GP Practice, Denbighshire County Council Social Services and the Third Sector to provide integrated services in a modern and purpose built facility.
Opened in September 2015, it offers an improved and more spacious environment for patients and staff as well as expanding the scale and range of health and voluntary services provided.
Jane Hutt said: “Investing in our health service is a priority for the Welsh Government and the new Llangollen Health Centre is a clear demonstration of that commitment.
“I am pleased we have provided over £5 million for this fantastic state-of-the-art facility which is playing a vital role in helping deliver the highest quality service to the local community.
“Investing in our infrastructure makes a positive difference and delivers real and long-term benefits for people.”
Simon Dean, interim Chief Executive of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, said: “It was a pleasure to welcome the Minister to the new Llangollen Health Centre.
“This major investment has given the town an excellent centre for care services, where GP practice staff and Health Board colleagues, along with social services and the voluntary sector, are now working together more effectively than ever to provide health and well-being services for the local communities.
“The building itself offers first class facilities, and it has the space we need to enable new services to be introduced.”
