by Amy Williams

NHS Property Services is pleased to announce that the development of the new medical facility at Park Prewett, Basingstoke, will commence on 28th July 2016 and will complete late spring 2017.

The new £2.7 million medical centre will be constructed by Brymor Construction Ltd and will provide modern, fit for purpose and sustainable accommodation to The Rooksdown Practice.

Alasdair White, Head of Construction Programme Management for NHS Property Services, said: “We are delighted that construction is underway on this project. The new state of the art facility will make a significant difference to care and treatment provided for patients.

“It has been a long journey to get to this stage and this is a huge step in the right direction. We would like to thank staff, patients and visitors for their continued patience.”

The new facility will be situated at the existing Park Prewett site in the area that is currently used as the car park. During construction, disabled parking bays are available, however there will be no general parking available to patients and visitors to the practice. Patients and visitors are urged to consider using local transport or alternative travel methods when visiting the centre during this period.
