A host of surgery improvements ensure premises are fit for the future

A number of new surgery buildings and refurbishments are ensuring the county’s GP premises remain fit for the future.

A brand new surgery development serving the people of Kingsway and the surrounding area has received planning permission.

The new premises will be run by Rosebank Health, which already operates Rosebank Surgery on Stroud Road and Severnvale Surgery in Quedgeley.

It will be able to cater for around 13,000 patients, and the new building will be built to modern, state-of-the-art specifications. It will include ten consulting rooms, four rooms which can be used flexibly for treatments and minor operations, first-rate facilities for reception and administration staff and an on-site pharmacy. Building work will take around 12 months.

 


 

Patients to the north of Cheltenham are also set to benefit from a brand new medical centre next year, with building work getting underway in September.

Cleevelands Medical Centre will be built within the heart of the new housing estate in Bishop’s Cleeve, and will see Seven Posts Surgery in Prestbury and Greyholme Surgery in Cleeve’s village centre come together on the new site, with the two original surgeries closing shortly afterwards.

The two surgeries currently provide care to over 10,000 patients, but with further housing planned for the area, the new larger surgery’s total number of patients is set to rise over the next few years.

The new premises will be modern and spacious, and will have 14 clinical rooms, including consulting and nurse treatment rooms, as well as a suite for minor operations and an onsite pharmacy.

 


 

In Churchdown, building work on the long-awaited new surgery development is finally underway.

The new premises, which are being built on Parton Road, will be able to cater for up to 20,000 patients, significantly improving the growing local population’s access to primary care services.

The new building is being built to modern, comfortable, state-of-the-art specifications and will include additional consulting rooms, nurse treatment areas, a lift, training rooms and first-rate facilities for reception and administration staff.

The new premises will ensure that the surgery can continue to provide high quality services for years to come and is due to be available for use from spring 2018.

 


 

Meanwhile, patients registered with Stoke Road Surgery in Bishop’s Cleeve are benefitting from an extension and internal refurbishment of the premises.

The renovation work has added a number of consulting rooms, a new patient waiting and reception area, an upgraded minor operations room and much needed modern, administration office space.

With the significant increase in the local population over the past few years, the surgery can now cope with the growing demand for services.
