The Healthcare Hub is coming to Pontypridd!

Business partners and siblings, Hayley, Tom and Paul Cooper are delighted to announce that they will be expanding The Healthcare Hub brand with a third branch to service the local communities of the Rhondda Valley. The latest Hub which will be their third in less than three years, is set to open its doors in Pontypridd town this Autumn/Winter.

Work is currently underway to fit-out the former Soulsby Opticians on Taff Street, which when complete will accommodate a large modern retail area, reception and waiting area to service five independent clinical spaces. See artist impressions below.

The success to date of existing sites in Whitchurch and Canton (Cardiff) has reinforced the owners belief that there is real demand from the public for the healthcare products and services offered at The Healthcare Hub, which draws inspiration from the European model of orthopaedic shop/clinics.

The Vision

To establish a network of service-led retail venues providing a cross section of desired healthcare services and a broad choice of medically approved products, all under one roof. The goal is to make certain healthcare services and niche medical products more accessible to the public. In doing so, the aim is to assist GP’s and alleviate the financial constraints imposed on the National Health Service.

The Healthcare Hub Concept

The out-of-town Healthcare Hubs are designed to dovetail professional clinical facilities with a modern retail experience in a welcoming environment. The Hub will accommodate a mix of Healthcare Professionals so that the public can have greater access to a variety of desired healthcare services within their local community. Similarly, the retail aspect will also provide a range of class 1 medical devices and other associated products that are not typically available from traditional pharmacies or other retail outlets. Trained in-store Healthcare Assistants will also be on hand to enable appropriate product selection and fitting guidance.

Healthcare Services Offered at The Hub

Leading Welsh podiatry firm Ace Feet In Motion are the primary healthcare providers offering a complete range of podiatry services.  Appointments with experienced HCPC registered Podiatrists will be available for all chiropody services including nail cutting, nail surgery, reduction of corns/callus and verruca treatments. Patients suffering with poor gait or foot function can also book a biomechanical foot assessment for the prescription of market leading orthotic insoles.

Discussions are also ongoing with a variety of allied Healthcare Professionals. It is anticipated that a mix of services from established healthcare businesses will also be offered from the other clinical facilities available at the Hub. Services such as physiotherapy, sports massage therapy, acupuncture and many more are currently being explored. Should this be of interest to your business please email us at

 Tom Cooper, Managing Director says,

“The Healthcare Hub concept is thriving and off the back of three successful years with our existing Hubs, the time is right for us to push on and expand our network across Wales. We’ve been waiting for the right site in Rhondda for over a year now and we feel that our new location in the vibrant town of Pontypridd is perfect. I hope that our latest venture will be well received when launched and that our healthcare services and medical products help support the health and wellbeing of the public in Ponty and the surrounding local communities”
