Patients to enjoy new Kirklees GP surgery building
A Kirklees GP practice has opened to patients in its new home – after our transformation of an empty surgery building into a state-of-the-art new space.
We’ve overhauled and refurbished the building on Cook Lane, Heckmondwike – vacant since Brookroyd Surgery moved to its new premises in Heckmondwike Health Centre several years ago –to create fit-for-purpose premises for the nearby Albion Street Surgery, which serves 2,600 patients.
The new-look building includes four treatment rooms and a room for minor operations in accessible space which meets all the latest clinical requirements, as well as improved waiting areas and administration space.
Dr Jabbar from Albion Street Surgery says: “We’re delighted to have moved into the new-look building – we need space to keep developing our offer to patients and this gives us the premises to do that.”
Paul Warwick, our Development Manager says: “Making sure that a building with a long NHS history can go on to providing NHS care for decades to come is a fantastic end result. GPs can’t deliver the huge task of moving more health services into our communities without the right spaces in the right places, and this project is a prime example of how – with the right support – the NHS can re-use existing buildings to make them fit for the future.”
With the relocation of the practice, its name will be changed to Cook Lane Surgery.
