Construction work has started on the new £10.9m Devizes Health Centre. The new build will be one of the region’s first integrated care centres, and will offer a home to a number of different health and care providers, all of whom will provide a variety of services to patients under the same roof.

As well as replacing the existing services at Devizes Community Hospital, the new facility will give local GPs additional clinical space needed for everyday care, and also the room to provide a number of enhanced services.

Some of the extra services that will be provided from the site include phlebotomy, physiotherapy, audiology, podiatry, diabetes and mental health.

Works are expected to last approximately 12 months, with the doors to the new facility scheduled to open to patients in summer 2022.

The integrated health centre is going to be net zero carbon in operation which means the building will have the facilities, such as heat pumps and solar panels to generate electricity and heat to serve the building.

Dr Andrew Girdher, Clinical Chair, said: “The new Devizes Health Centre will be a facility the whole community can be proud of and benefit from, and I am delighted that building work on this long-awaited project is soon to be under way. As the flagship location for health and care in Devizes, the centre will ensure patients have access to modern facilities and state-of-the-art services while also providing professionals with much-needed additional clinical space, which will allow teams to provide an even greater level of care."

The building of the new Devizes Health Centre will be overseen by NHS Property Services, which has worked with the CCG over the last few years in getting the project off the ground. Andrew Strange, Regional Partnership Director, NHS Property Services, said: “We are delighted that we are closer to delivering a modern healthcare facility that will enable the provision of excellent patient care to the community. We are delighted to see this project progress as it will undoubtedly enhance the experience of patients using it.”
