Significant Progress Made On New Medical Centre In Leicestershire

Construction News Image
Contractor G F Tomlinson is making significant progress on the new Barwell Medical Centre in Leicestershire.

The new two-storey doctor's surgery, located off High Street, Barwell, will replace the existing centre on Jersey Way, which is at capacity and unable to meet the growing demand for its services from the local community.

Due for completion in June 2024, the new medical centre will provide modern healthcare facilities to many more local people, with demand expected to grow from its current 6,400 to 11,000 users over the next five to ten years.

The additional space at the new centre will allow it to provide a greater range of much-needed health services, including physiotherapy and mental health support.

The new L-shaped building will consist of 12 consulting rooms, a space for minor surgical procedures with recovery facilities, a health promotion area, as well as 52 car parking spaces and six cycle racks. The centre will be constructed to BREEAM Excellent standards, ensuring the long-term sustainability of the new Medical Centre.

Demolition works at the unused brownfield site have already taken place which saw the removal of a former vehicle workshop and warehouse.

Adrian Grocock, Group Managing Director at G F Tomlinson, said: "To be delivering this new contemporary medical facility which will enable more local people to access vital medical care, as well as its expanding specialist services, is a privilege.

"G F Tomlinson is vastly experienced in the delivery of healthcare schemes and understand the incredibly important role they play in the local community. The team and I are looking forward to seeing this significant facility progress over the coming months."
