Finch Road Primary Care Centre
Lozells and East Handsworth is one of Birmingham’s most deprived and ethnically diverse wards. The Finch Road scheme was an opportunity to bring investment into the area and create a building in which the community could take pride.
As well as ground floor capacity for two general practices, each serving 5,000 patients, the centre brings together psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers from Birmingham’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAHMS) onto one site for the first time.
