Former health clinic in Neath Valley sold off

GLYNNEATH Clinic changed hands for £71,000, Swansea Bay University Health Board has aid.

Health board chiefs have also accepted an undisclosed offer for Coelbren Health Clinic, in the Upper Swansea Valley.

Patients at Glynneath Clinic have been attending the new Vale of Neath Primary Care Centre, by a McDonald’s restaurant off the A465 in Blaengwrach, since last summer.

The new care centre also treats patients from the former Resolven Health Centre – a few miles down the A465. The Resolven building, on Ynysfach Avenue, was marketed for £85,000 and has been sold subject to contract, according to property website On The Market.

The health board has provided funding for transport to help patients get to and from the new facility.

Glynneath councillor Siom Knoyle said: “I think the new health centre is working very well.

“Transport is an issue, as it’s a little way out of the centre of Glynneath.”

Resolven councillor Dean Lewis said the new primary care centre was four miles from Resolven and felt “out of the way”, but he said that patients had coped.

Patients at the former Coelbren Health Clinic, which was marketed by an estate agent for offers in the region of £160,000, attend the Dulais Valley Practice, Seven Sisters.

Recruiting GPs had been an issue at Coelbren, with weekly sessions reducing from 30 to 18 per week in 2016.
