Olympic polyclinic renamed after Paralympic founder

The Olympic polyclinic will be renamed the Ludwig Guttmann Health Centre, after the founder of the Paralympics, when it opens to the public in summer 2013.

Olympic polyclinic: from summer 2013 the centre will open to the public

According to board papers released by NHS London, the centre will ‘offer a full range of services including GP and pharmacy’.

The Olympic polyclinic in Stratford, East London, was built at a cost of £17m to the NHS. During the Olympic and Paralympic Games it ran 24 hours a day, treating approximately 200 athletes daily.

A partnership including NHS London, Newham clinical commissioning group (CCG), its commissioning support and the London Borough of Newham will work together to specify the full range of activities and services offered by the centre.
