FAMILY doctors have sent in their plans for six health centres to Kirklees Council.
Chiltern Securities, of Hertfordshire, will run North Kirklees Primary Care Trust's £25m capital investment programme.
The plans submitted to Kirklees and seeking planning permission are for new or refurbished buildings in Ravensthorpe, Dewsbury, Savile Town, Cleckheaton, Liversedge and Batley.
A decision is expected in early December.
Trust chairman Barry Seal said it was an exciting step forward.
The new buildings will provide GP services, community nursing and other primary services.
The plans include new premises at Ravens- thorpe, Cleckheaton, Savile Town and Dewsbury and an intermediate care centre in Liversedge.
The existing health centre at Batley will be improved.
Plans for a new centre in Dewsbury would:
* House up to six general practices
* Offer tests to detect health problems and provide services such as speech therapy.
* Provide an eye-screening service for diabetics
* Offer benefits and housing advice, as well as some social services.
New primary care centres in Ravensthorpe and Savile Town would:
* Offer a wide range of services, such as baby clinics, heart disease and diabetes clinics
* House GP practices.
The health centre in Cleckheaton would be rebuilt and Batley health centre would be extended and refurbished.
The intermediate care centre on the site of Eddercliffe Grange home will help patients leaving hospital.
