Assura Delivers New Medical Centre For West Gorton


Primary healthcare property developer, Assura, has started on site at its latest North West scheme, commencing construction on a medical centre for West Gorton, Manchester.

The 1,191 sq ft. practice will bring a host of new health and community care facilities to Gorton, with the new neighbourhood centre including a Pharmacy and retail outlet. West Gorton Medical Centre will be the newest addition to Assura’s current portfolio of 301 practices, of which 25 per cent are located within a 50-mile radius of the company’s Warrington base.

Paul Warwick, project manager at Assura, said: “As Manchester prepares to welcome devolved responsibilities for health and social care, we remain committed to supplying the highest quality premises and resources for staff and patients in the local area.

“We have had a remarkable year at Assura, and it is particularly exciting for us that so many of these developments are in close proximity to our own HQ. Our team of property and financial experts continues to work with local GP partners to support further advancement of services and long-term growth for the region’s health professionals.”

Julie Jefferson, practice manager at West Gorton Medical Centre, said: “It has been an important year for Manchester’s health and community services, with 2016 expected to bring further transformative decisions for the city.

“We are looking forward to improving the quality of facilities available in West Gorton, and to strengthening our existing relationships with other local care providers to establish a supportive professional care network.”

West Gorton Medical Centre is being delivered in partnership with LSP Developments.
