West Hart Partnership design energy-efficient new surgery

Construction work has started on a new medical centre in Derbyshire.

Developer, Assura Group, has begun to build the new Willington Medical Centre in conjunction with LSP Developments.

Designed by West Hart Partnership, the £2.5m facility will incorporate a GP practice and a local independent pharmacy.

Covering 13,000sq ft, the building has been designed to be energy efficient and is expected to achieve a BREEAM ‘very good’ rating.

Amanda Roddy, development manager at Assura Group, said: “We are currently delivering a number of fantastic projects in the Midlands, with several integrated health centres that have started on site in the last 12 months. The ability for primary care providers to deliver a wide range of services to their communities has been hampered in some cases by out-of-date facilities, but these buildings help to remedy that.”

Dr Farrell, GP at the Willington Medical Centre, added: “The new medical centre will enable us to provide a pleasant, well-designed and eco-friendly environment for patients fit for the demands of an evolving NHS.”
