A £1,500,000 Primary Care Trust Centre was built to provide state of the art health services to 20,000 patients in the local community. The centre replaces four existing GP practices with the potential to add a fifth. The centre includes other amenities including a dentist, pharmacy and other well being services to support the local community.
The design of the building has been recognised by the RICS in the infrastructure category which recognises projects that deliver essential facilities. The building design had many environmentally friendly attributes and is rated by BREEAM as ‘excellent’.
