Keys to former Barrow school to be handed over for creation of new health centre

THE keys to a former school which is to become a new health facility for Barrow will be handed over today.

0493299
INTEGRATED CARE The former Alfred Barrow School.

Cumbria County Council will officially hand over the keys to the Alfred Barrow School to eLift Cumbria, securing its future as the home of a NHS health centre.

The council says this sale is a key milestone and the start of a journey towards the development of the facility that will support wider economic regeneration in the area and provide the local community with easy access to a wide range of health and wellbeing facilities delivered from modern, high quality premises.

The new centre, which will be developed by e.LIFT Cumbria, will bring together a number of GP practices under one roof, working alongside a number of community health services, currently provided by Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. It will also potentially provide a base for the North West Ambulance Services.

The public-private partnership, eLIFT Cumbria Limited, was formed in 2009 by NHS Cumbria, Express LIFT Investments Limited (“ELIL”), Community Health Partnerships and Cumbria County Council following the appointment of ELIL as NHS Cumbria’s LIFT private sector partner.

Community Health Partnerships Limited is a company wholly owned by the Department of Health and is the national lead for the LIFT (Local Improvement Finance Trust) programme. CHP has a 40 per cent shareholding in eLIFT Cumbria.
