The work will be carried out in two phases over seven months and will enable the centre to offer additional services as well as helping meet the increasing demand for primary care as the local population is expected increase by 18,000 over the next five years.

The first phase of the project will see a disused internal courtyard converted into a new administration hub and an extended waiting room. This will free up space for three new treatment rooms.

Ventilation turrets will also be installed to keep the building cool in summer.

A dedicated nursing suite will be built as part of the second phase. This suite will offer facilities for an enhanced urgent care and minor injuries service for the centre’s patients and reducing the pressure on A and E.
