    "...Wallsend Health Centre designed in the late 1930s for Wallsend Borough Council is Listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons: * Historic: it has significant socio-historic interest in representing regional political will for improved public health and welfare provision during the 1930s, almost a decade before the creation of the National Health Service. * Design: the building's plan form, and the incorporation of large windows to all areas, maximises light and air within the building, which echoes the design principles of the best inter-war health centres nationally; * Architectural: the building is a well-detailed and symmetrical design in a modernist style incorporating Art Deco elements both externally and internally; * Survival: it is well-preserved both externally and internally, and the original layout of the building remains largely intact and readable;..."
