Chapel House centre brings together two GP practices
A new 1,500sq ft purpose-built medical centre has opened in Chapel House, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Delivered by Assura Group in partnership with Ashley House, the development, on the site of the old clinic and church hall, will replace the former Parkway and Holmside surgeries in Frenton Close
The integrated medical centre includes primary care, a pharmacy and additional self-contained rooms for separate healthcare providers. The combination of different facilities and practices has created a convenient one-stop-shop for the local community, and will deliver an enhanced standard of primary care.
Amanda Roddy, development manager at Assura Group, said: “We are proud to have been associated with the development of Chapel House medical centre, as the premises will prove indispensable for the local area. In a challenging period, it is important that centres for the NHS such as Chapel House provide preventative care that effectively reduces pressure on staff at every level of the health service.”
Gail Mosley, director of Ashley House, added: “The long-awaited development of this combined medical centre is a significant addition for the area. Now housing two GP surgeries and a pharmacy, Chapel House is capable of providing streamlined services and efficient primary care with its up-to-date integrated facilities.”
Ashley House was appointed to design the centre and Galliford Try was the selected sub-contractor for the project.
