According to Rosa Valente de Matos, the new units are to be built in partnership with the Lisbon city council, with the priority being to replace "those that are most run down”.

 

A second phase of the programme will see new premises housing health centres that up to now “have had some refits and don't need to be replaced right now."

 

The planned new health centres are those for Alta Lisboa-Norte (in the Santa Clara parish), Telheiras (in Lumiar), Alcântara, Ajuda, Restelo (in Belém), Alto dos Moinhos (in São Domingos de Benfica), Fonte Nova (in Benfica), Marvila , US Campo de Ourique, Areeiro, Arroios, Beato, Sapadores-Graça and Parque das Nações.

 

According to de Matos, construction work is to start this year and be concluded in 2020. The new facilities are to be "different, more open to the community, in which people... don't have to climb stairs."

 

Some of the new centres are to have dentists' practices, X-ray machines, bloodwork labs and other diagnostic tests.
