“Keeping your health at the centre of what we do”

Opening of the new Children’s Health Centre

Phased Opening of the new Children’s Health Centre – Our Promise to you.

We will deliver a Children’s Health Centre which is far more than a Primary Care Centre for children with the co-location and seamless flow of all children’s health services across primary and secondary care.

 

We aim to deliver our services in a safe, secure, and phased manner, initially prioritising service availability to the most vulnerable among us; namely, the children and families with disabilities and additional needs, as well as those with chronic and complex medical conditions.  All of this with a view to becoming fully available to all children in Gibraltar by the beginning of September.
