Background

Port Talbot Resource Centre is one of the largest of it’s kind in the UK and is one of the first projects in Wales to achieve integration between primary and community NHS services

“Port Talbot Resource Centre is one of the largest of it’s kind in the UK and is one of the first projects in Wales to achieve integration between primary and community NHS services.”

Developed and led by the former Neath Port Talbot Local Health Board, the centre includes the co-location of 4 GP practices (King’s, Fairfield, Morrison Road and Riverside), Lloyds Pharmacy, a Dental Teaching Unit and a wide range of ABMU community and therapy services. Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council’s Older Persons Care Management Team and an integrated Mental Health Care Team are also housed at the site.

Voluntary sector agencies including Citizen Advice Bureau and The Cancer Information service provide advice clinics and the cafeteria is run by the Third Sector Enterprises, part of Neath Port Talbot Council for Voluntary Services. The centre also includes excellent training and education facilities.

The centre has facilitated the transfer of services from secondary to primary care while also creating opportunities for diagnostic and specialist services. The development of the centre was in response to the strategic challenges of national and local policy including “Designed for Life”, “ the Review of Health and Social Care inWales” and the LHB’s local “ Health and Wellbeing Strategy”.
