Spades In The Ground As Work Starts At The New Brackley Medical Centre

Work is starting on a major new medical centre in Brackley. The Brackley Medical Centre will accommodate two merged GP practices, Brackley Health Centre and Washington House Surgery, as well as a new pharmacy.

The development of the three-storey, 4,200 sq m medical centre, is being built on a new site on the northern outskirts of Brackley.

As well as improved and extended facilities for the GP practice, the medical centre will accommodate a minor injuries treatment centre, 16 intermediate care beds (transferred from Brackley Cottage Hospital), pharmacy, café and ambulance base, as well as 130 car parking spaces.

Dr Philip Stevens says, "Everyone at Brackley Medical Centre and Lowick Pharmacy is delighted that this new medical facility is going ahead. We are excited about the opportunities which it gives us to expand the range of services and care which will be available to all the people of South Northants. Thanks are due to many people for their help and support with the project, over the years, to get it to this stage. "

The new centre has been designed by specialist architects in the primary healthcare team at real estate advisor GVA. GVA has been working with GPs from Brackley Medical Centre for the last five years to help them bring their vision of transforming their community health provision to fruition, providing a range of services including development consultancy and valuation, architectural services and project management.

Tim Scruton, Regional Head of Building Consultancy at GVA says, "This is an exciting, and long-awaited day as we mark the start of construction on Brackley's new medical centre. The GP practices have been working from premises that are in considerable need of modernisation, and the new centre, that is being brought forward by Dudley Taylor Ltd, will enable them to offer a wider range of services to patients that meet the requirements of today's changing community health provision."
