Assura Group moves onto site of £3.5m development in Market Weighton

Work has started on a new £3.5m health and social care centre in Market Weighton, East Riding of Yorkshire.

Assura Group has announced the launch of its latest project, which will include a minor surgery suite, training rooms and specialist clinics for those suffering from conditions like asthma, COPD, and diabetes, with additional space for community services and visiting consultants.

The development will provide a modern, state-of-the-art facility for the Market Weighton Surgery formerly at Londesborough Road, adding an onsite pharmacy and additional space for community services, which will enhance the local health offering to residents.

Development manager at Assura Group, Amanda Roddy, said: “The Market Weighton scheme will revolutionise how healthcare is delivered and experienced in the area as Assura Group constantly strives to support practices wishing to improve health outcomes and offer advanced care to patients. The facilities developed in partnership with project managers LSP Developments will deliver a boost to the state of primary care in the local community.”

Dr Clive Henderson, lead GP at Market Weighton Surgery, added: “Now that the project is underway, we are looking forward to the benefits the community will reap from this new integrated health centre. With improved resources and access for both staff and patients, it’s great to see the project beginning to take shape.”
