Four Practices, One Site

The £8 million development was completed over a fourteen month period. This project brought together a committed group of GPs and staff who recognised the value of a purpose built premises for their 30,000 patient population. Prior to the new development each practice was operating in buildings which had limited or no potential for expansion.

“The whole team of doctors, nurses and reception staff were excited about moving into this wonderful new building. This project was the culmination of a lot of planning and hard work over a couple of years. We couldn’t wait to welcome our patients to the modern purpose- built premises.”
