Assura Completes New Ashby-De-La-Zouch Medical Centre


Primary care property company Assura has completed its latest project, bringing a new integrated healthcare centre to Ashby-de-la-Zouch, West Leicestershire.

The new multipurpose medical centre, which was delivered in partnership with specialist developers Matrix Medical, will provide a number of important primary services, including a general practice and a pharmacy, for the local community.

The existing Ashby medical centre was nearly 40 years old, and was in need of significant improvement to accommodate its expanding patient list. The practice now benefits from the numerous health and community care facilities available from a convenient location.

Andrew Darke, managing director of property at Assura plc, said: “As the primary healthcare sector continues its push for accessible, well-connected medical centres, we’re pleased that the new practice at Ashby can now deliver a multitude of necessary services to its staff and patients.

“Throughout 2016, our objective will be to continue supporting the healthcare professional network, delivering practices that can accommodate the full extent of primary care treatment and ease the pressure on secondary healthcare services.”

Ashley Seymour, Development Director at Matrix Medical, said: “The completion of the medical centre in Ashby-de-la-Zouch provides an essential centre for the neighbourhood, improving access to a number of significant primary care resources in addition to the general practice. It is through facilitating this access to advanced primary services that new developments can forge a closer link between health and social care for communities throughout the UK.”
