A NEW health centre being built on Heysham Road is scheduled for an August 2012 opening.
Both the existing Heysham Health Centre (run by Coastal Medical Group) and Strawberry Gardens practices will move into the new building.
The centre will house new treatment rooms, consulting rooms, a pharmacy and PCT clinic along with district nurses, health visitors, community matrons and school nurses.
“The new purpose built centre will provide the necessary expansion space to deal with an ageing and growing local population,” said a spokeswoman for NHS North Lancashire.
