Assura Completes £1.5 million investment in the Queens Park Medical Centre, Stockton

27.01.2014

Leading Healthcare property developer and investors, Assura Group, are pleased to announce the recent completion of a £1.5million investment in the Queens Park Medical Centre, Stockton which has provided for a full refurbishment of the existing premises together with completion of a 5,400 sq ft two storey extension.

The works have allowed a full re-modellling of the internal areas, almost doubling the floor area of the existing practice to improve both waiting areas and bring consulting rooms to a modern standard. In addition space has been created for a new 800sq ft Pharmacy space to be occupied by Norchem which will complement the enhanced delivery of GP services from the medical centre.

The 32 week programme, which completed on budget,  proved very challenging for principal contractor, Tolent, with the practice remaining operational throughout the entire period of the works which incorporated several phases to allow for de-canting of staff as areas were completed.

Practice Manager, Graham Wynn has been extremely pleased with the way in which this has been managed “The newly extended and refurbished premises will make a tremendous difference to the services we are able to offer our patients and the environment which they and our staff function. I was particularly pleased with the understanding and accommodating nature of the main and sub-contractors who managed to deliver the project with a minimum of disruption whilst we continued to function”.
