Beverley Health Centre undergoes major expansion

Beverley Health Centre has been the subject of £241,000 of works to reconfigure space within the Health Centre.

Work to reconfigure Beverley Health Centre have recently completed. The refurbishment is aimed at optimising space at the site, creating room for Manor Road Surgery to expand its patient list to address future demand for health services.  Working together, the site’s landlord, Assura, its sub-landlord, NHS Property Services (NHSPS) and East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) devised a way in which the existing space in the building could be repurposed to provide an additional four consulting rooms for Manor Road Surgery’s GPs, expanding access to healthcare in the locality.

The works were financed by £241,000 of combined funding from the CCG and Assura and created an additional 210 metres squared of high-quality clinical space within the building.  In addition to these refurbishment works, the building also underwent improvements, such as the installation of new floors, fittings and a climate control system, which are aimed at providing an enhanced environment for patients to receive care in and improved workspaces for NHS staff.

Richard Dodson, Chief Financeat East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said:

“We are pleased to have been able to support the development at Beverley Health Centre. The population of Beverley and surrounding areas continues to grow and this refurbishment to create additional space will help to ensure GP services in Beverley remain sustainable and continue to meet the Primary Care health needs for local patients.  The refurbishment was made possible thanks to the collaborative working of all NHS providers who deliver services from the Health Centre and we are grateful for their assistance in delivering these enhancements.”

Dr Julie Cavill, Manor Road Surgery, said:

“As the practice list continues to grow we are committed to providing excellent clinical primary care to our patient’s. The new rooms provide additional space for consultations with GP’s and other allied healthcare professionals.”

Thomas Britcliffe, Principal Portfolio Optimisation Manager, North East and North West England, said:

“We hope that our work on Beverley Health Centre will not only provide a more pleasant environment for patients and NHS colleagues alike, but but future-proof the building to meet increasing demand for healthcare locally.”
