A DOCTORS' surgery wrecked by fire last month is to move into its third home in six weeks.
Crosland Moor Health Centre, on Park Road West, was ravaged when a trolley full of cardboard was set alight at the back of the adjoining supermarket.
Two GPs and their staff had to relocate to St Luke's Hospital. But the hospital needs those offices back. And a planning application has been submitted to Kirklees Council for a temporary GP surgery and car park spaces on the hospital site.
The temporary surgery would be eight metres by 20 metres and would feature two doctor's consulting rooms, two nurses offices, a reception, administrative room and waiting area.
Dr Viv Martin said: "The fire caused a tremendous amount of disruption.
"It is hoped that the temporary surgery will be delivered on December 1.
"We do not know what's going to happen in the long term."
Dr Martin said that the present accommodation at St Luke's had fewer phone lines than before and patients had to pay to park their car on the site.
When the portable surgery is installed, the number of phone lines will be increased and a number of parking spaces created.
The application was submitted by the Central Huddersfield Primary Care Trust.
