Child Health Hub

Cheshire East Integrated Care Partnership are excited to announce that a project is well underway to develop a Child Health Hub in the area. The idea of the Child Health Hub will be to bring care closer to home for the children of Cheshire East. This will be in the form of potentially developing new clinics and care pathways & linking communication more effectively between our GP colleagues and Paediatric departments in Hospitals to ensure that all children receive care where they need it. The project is constantly evolving, so we will continue to keep you updated in regards to ongoing progress.

If you have a concern about a child or your enquiry is urgent contact CheCS on 0300 123 5012 and out of hours on 0300 123 5022.

Parking at Hurdsfield Children’s centre and Primary School

Due to health and safety concerns about the increased volumes of traffic using the School and Children’s Centre car park, a decision has been taken that as of Monday 25th March 2019 there will be no parking facilities available to the general public on the Children Centre and the School car park.

We would kindly request that you park on the surrounding roads and support us in keeping the children and the public safe. The School and Children’s Centre can be accessed via the pedestrian entrance into School.

Thank you for your support with this matter.
