Lindum’s BMS division is delighted to have successfully completed a new £2.2 million doctors’ surgery for a local GP practice.
Keys to the new two-storey Richmond Medical Centre were handed to NHS Property Services after the team completed construction work on the state-of-the-art building, along with all associated car parking, external works, drainage and service connections.
The practice’s new home is almost three times the size of the nearby building it previously operated from and its 9,500 patients are now benefitting from a midwifery room, larger waiting room, purpose-built consultant areas and improved access for disabled people.
The ground floor consists of a reception, consulting rooms, pharmacy, plant room and toilets.
Richard Shaw, Contracts Manager at Lindum Group, said: “We’re very proud to have successfully delivered this eagerly anticipated project for NHS Property Services and are confident it will be a fine addition to healthcare provision in the area.”
Paul Jones, Principal Construction Manager at NHS Property Services, which funded the development, said: “It’s fantastic to receive the keys to this superb new facility, which is further evidence of our work to ensure the NHS operates from modern, fit-for-purpose buildings.
“I’d like to thank local people for their understanding during the construction phase – we hope they agree it has been worth it and we know the new building will make a real difference to local patient care.
“We’d also like to thank our NHS and developer partners for their hard work in creating this excellent facility.”
The two-storey building has photo-voltaic cells on its roof to help off-set energy costs.
The foundations and structure of the building has been designed so it can be expanded in the future, if needed.
Sarah-Jane Mills, Chief Operating Officer at NHS Lincolnshire West CCG, which commissions local GP services, said: “We’re very pleased that NHS Property Services has delivered this purpose-built facility that will offer thousands of patients with more choice and care closer to home.
“This facility supports our commitment to providing good access to high quality primary care.”
