Work starts on building the new Wellbeing Hub @ Maelfa

Work on a long-awaited new Wellbeing Hub in Cardiff has begun following months of planning between Cardiff Council, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board and Llanedeyrn Health Centre.

Thanks to a £14 million pound investment from Welsh Government, construction has started on the new Wellbeing Hub @ Maelfa.

The new centre is being built onto the current Council Powerhouse Community Hub so it makes use of the services provided from the Powerhouse with a community café, shared community rooms and an advice area, where health, local authority and third sector groups can provide advice, education and wellbeing services. Having the new Wellbeing Hub and existing Powerhouse Community Hub physically connected and sharing the space integrates both health and community services and provides a multi-functional service for patients, staff and the local community of Llandeyrn, as set out in Cardiff's Wellbeing Plan.

The new centre, which will also replace the Llanedeyrn Health Centre, will serve patients of Llanedeyrn and Pentwyn from October 2022 when construction is expected to finish. Llan Healthcare will continue to operate from the Llanedeyrn Health Centre and Llanrumney Medical Group while building work is ongoing.

The Hub not only boasts additional clinical space in the form of 15 consulting rooms, six treatment rooms and four interview rooms but it will also house a range of specialised health clinics including support services for children and younger people, antenatal care and counselling.

Cabinet Member for Social Care, Health & Wellbeing, Cllr Susan Elsmore, said: "The Council and UHB are both committed to the integrating and modernising health and community services and facilities for the benefit of Cardiff residents. The Maelfa Wellbeing Hub provides an excellent opportunity to deliver on this commitment and I look forward to seeing their exciting development progress."

Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities, Cllr Lynda Thorne, said: "The Council's Community Hubs programme has joined-up service provision and partnership working in priority neighbourhoods at its heart so I'm delighted to see these principles being extended further, to enhance services at the Powerhouse and further contribute to the regeneration the Maelfa area for the community."
