Progress on Heanor’s new healthcare unit has taken a leap forward after exterior roof rafts and the interior shell have been put in place.

Site manager Piers Austin said: “We are progressing quickly with the super structure the roof trusses are now on.”

The building on the former Heanor Memorial Hospital site on Ilkeston Road, is expected to be completed by late 2017.

The original hospital closed in September 2013. Community members can follow the progress on Twitter through the hashtag #HeanorHealthNewEra.
