Multi-storey PCCs provide a wide range of primary care and community services in towns and villages throughout the country. The health services that Primary Care Centers based in local communities will generally provide would include GP services, occupational therapy, social work, and dietetic services. In some locations, additional services will also be provided including community nursing services, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy services, and counseling services. The PCCs are also set out to accommodate many different uses like physiotherapy, GP, nurse and consulting rooms for various professionals. They also link in with the National Screen Services. There is a large amount of communal/general admittance and “open Entry” space at the core of all the PCCs with the remaining wings and levels bridging off to the separate rooms and floors throughout. As the PCCs facilitate the delivery of multi-disciplinary services capable of meeting the great majority of people’s healthcare needs, in the most appropriate and economic setting, it is no surprise that the level of stakeholder engagement through the development of these centers is very high and detailed.
