The Dove Primary Care Centre
Located on Dovedale Road in the 90 acre Perry Common housing regeneration area, the landmark Dove Centre provides enhanced accommodation for a GP teaching practice and a wide range of primary care services.
A notable feature of the centre is its stunning community inspired artwork on floor and walls, created by a local artist working with residents and schoolchildren.
“It’s vital that the community ‘owns’ the centre. It isn’t all about the building, good personal relationships have to be built along with the bricks and mortar." Linda Hines MBE, Community Champion involved in the development of The Dove Primary Care Centre.
