Medical hub to be built in Hereford

Five GP surgeries come together under one roof

The new medical centre will bring five GP clinics together

Utilising the PIC framework, Prime has appointed national building contractor, Speller Metcalfe, to construct a new £6m GP healthcare hub in the centre of Hereford.

The medical centre will be built on a site close to the railway station in the heart of the city and will house five established city surgeries which are operated by the newly-formed Hereford Medical Group.

Greyfriars, Moorfield House, Aylestone Hill, Sarum house and King Street GP surgeries will join together under one roof to provide more-accessible, efficient and up-to-date primary care services, as well as offering specialist services for patients from other city practices.

The health centre has been designed by Worcester-based architects, One Creative Environments, to be a highly-sustainable and energy-efficient building and will include facilities for an on-site pharmacy, 92 parking spaces, 14 cycle stands and an ambulance bay.

Work will start on site in January and the new surgery is expected to open in early 2020.
