WORK has started on the first phase of a £10m London 2012 legacy project to make Sheffield one of the most physically active cities in the UK, with Concord Sports Centre one of the centres benefiting from redevelopment.
The scheme at Concord will see an unused changing block transformed into a centre that will promote physical activity as a treatment in the NHS, as part of the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine.
The refurbished area will house seven clinical consulting rooms for NHS outpatients’ clinics, education and training facilities and tele-health suites, as well as creating a connection to the existing sports centre and outdoor spaces.
Two further NCSEM sites will be opened at Graves Tennis and Leisure Centre and in north Sheffield in early 2016.
