Canterbury Medical Centre
Location: Canterbury, Kent
Client: Assura Healthcare Ltd
The project, our second on site for valued client Assura plc, involves the design and construction of a new two-storey medical centre to provide various GP and nurses rooms, minor operating theatres, staff administration space and kitchen areas as well as several spacious waiting rooms, as shown in the CGI’s (pictured right), an adjacent pharmacy and dedicated patient parking.
By amalgamating two former Canterbury GP practices that were becoming tired and no longer fit-for-purpose, and co-locating these within hospital grounds, patients will benefit from greater co-ordination of primary care services which will undoubtedly be an absolute asset from which the community will benefit greatly. This is also one of the first new build GP premises in the country to benefit from funding via the NHS England Estates and Technology transformation fund.
This is a particularly prominent site for Jenner within the heart of the bustling Kent and Canterbury Hospital grounds and has
received high praise from many of the NHS staff which is most encouraging to hear:
“It’s an amazing achievement thus far, the way your team have gone about each stage has been thorough, skilled and professional, one can’t fail to be impressed. Your tribute to the NHS is also touching and welcomed in these difficult times.”
Works are progressing well on site with completion anticipated for Spring 2021
