A NEW £4m hospital for Harborough was granted planning permission last night (Tuesday).
The facility will be built on the St Luke’s site in Leicester Road, Harborough.
It will comprise a three-storey building situated in front of the present hospital, with the two buildings linked via a corridor.
Services offered at the new combined hospital will include a GP practice, minor injuries unit, phlebotomy (bloods), radiology, physiotherapy, audiology (hearing) services, mental health and out-patients department, and bases for community nursing and patient transport.
The plans were given the green light by Harborough District Council’s planning committee last night.
