New care home for southside

A NEW care home is about to be opened in the southside, providing 80 jobs for the area.

The Northcare home, 3 Bridges, will cater for 72 patients in plush surrounds.

Split over two floors the ground will be home to 36 frail, elderly patients, who will have access to their own private patios, while the upper level will house dementia sufferers who will have a balcony access from public areas.
