A new 24m health hub is yet to open to patients five months after it was built due to a catalogue of failings by health bosses, a review has found.

Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre was hailed as a major new facility for the area in Greater Manchester.

But a report found failure to ensure contracts were agreed with tenants and poor management undermined the project.

Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group (TCCG) apologised but said previous managers were responsible.

The Market Street building, completed in October last year, is costing the NHS around 2.35m a year even though it remains empty, apart from a library.




GP practices and other NHS services were unwilling to move in after becoming concerned about high overheads at the building, the Local Democracy Reporting Service said.

Perhaps the opinions of the above services should have been sought beforehand  :-\
