Go ahead granted for Nimbuscare’s Acomb Garth Community Care Centre
Nimbuscare, a collaboration of York’s 11 GP Practices, is pleased to have been given the go ahead for a new Community Care Centre for the people of York.
Last December, working with partners across the city, Nimbuscare applied to the City of York Council to change the use of the Acomb Garth site in York from a secure residential institution to a primary care medical centre.
The intention is to open the site this summer as a hub to provide more integrated, closer to home, community services for the people of York.
Madeline Ruff, Chief Executive of Nimbuscare, said: “This is really positive news for the people of York. Nimbuscare passionately believes that community health, care and voluntary services delivered together, within the community, has a positive impact people’s health and wellbeing.
“We want to develop new and innovative services which will really benefit local people and this great new facility will be an excellent base for us to provide much-needed community care services.
“As a not for profit organisation, we want to reinvest into the community. We are looking to deliver a broad range of services for local people from sites which are easy to access for everyone.”
We plan to open this new facility this Summer and will keep people updated on progress.
