Wiltshire's new integrated care centre

Take a look at what the new Devizes Health Centre, which is now in full operation, looked like before doors were open to patients.

The building is one of the country's first net-zero integrated care centres, setting a new standard for health care infrastructure nationwide.

Plans for the new build were approved during the first half of 2021, with construction work beginning in May 2021 for the £10.9 million centre.

Patients of four local GP surgeries are now able to access same day or next day medical care and will be directed to the centre for routine blood tests and medical reviews for things like asthma and diabetes, as well as some specialist clinics.

Supported by the Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire ICB, the services currently provided by Wiltshire Health and Care at the Devizes Community Hospital are moving to the new health centre. Royal United Hospitals Bath will be providing outpatient services including audiology, care of the elderly, paediatrics, rheumatology and urology services. The Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership will be providing some of their community services from the new health centre.

A wide range of organisations can now work together in a more joined-up and collaborative way in one of most state-of-the-art healthcare environments in the country, greatly improving the patient experience.
