Alfred Barrow Visual


The former Alfred Barrow School site on Duke Street in Barrow-in-Furness is currently being redeveloped to create a new health centre. It will integrate community, primary and social care services focusing on helping people to say well within the community.

The original Victorian school building is being retained and upgraded to provide administration facilities and a Response Base for the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

The new Alfred Barrow Health Centre building will be occupied by:

  • 3 GP practices (Abbey Road Surgery, Atkinson Health Centre and Risedale Surgery)
  • Morecambe Bay Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
  • University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT)
  • North West Ambulance Service (NWAS)
  • BAE Systems
  • Pharmacy Service

The health centre is being created to provide a modern, high quality building so that local health and care services can be provided in a safe, accessible and appropriate environment.

It will be a hub for healthy living and community wellbeing and will vastly improve patients’ experience by enabling community-based clinical teams to provide joined-up services that are efficient and effective.

A staff car park is being built to the rear of the new building, accessed off Ramsden Street and a public car park is being built on the opposite side of Duke Street.

The Alfred Barrow Health Centre will be opening in Summer 2019.
