Emergency service role for call centre

Have your say

Offices in the Dearne Valley are to become home to a new call centre handling urgent healthcare calls for the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

Henley Investments 101’s building 4 on the 16-acre Callflex Business Park will be home to the NHS 111 service, staffed by contact centre staff and experienced clinicians, providing advice 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The development is part of a new national initiative being rolled out to help direct patients to the most appropriate urgent healthcare service for their needs

Peter Whiteley, a partner at letting agents Knight Frank, said: “The Dearne Valley region has received much deserved attention as a prime place for businesses looking to base themselves in an attractive and practical location.

“Yorkshire Ambulance Service will have access to the community’s great amenities as well as excellent national communication links via the M1 and A1, with Sheffield, Leeds and Nottingham all less than 45 minutes away.”

Knight Frank has also let 22,000 sq ft at Callflex to Bramall Construction on behalf of Glanmoor Estates.

Knight Frank says the Dearne Valley is one of the UK’s most successful areas of regeneration with Callflex Business Park attracting other high profile occupiers such as South Yorkshire Police, The Royal Bank of Scotland, Sheffield University, Royal Mail, Land Securities Trillium, Ventura and Next.
