New Multi-Million Pound Medical Centre Opens
A new multi-million pound medical development in Newcastle has opened its doors to patients.
The Chapel House Primary Care Centre houses two GP practices and replaces the previous medical premises in the area, which were made up of former residential terraced houses.
The new development, which has taken eight years to get from the planning stage to being built and opened, now serves thousands of NHS patients from across the Chapel House and Westerhope areas of Newcastle.
The Primary Care Centre which was developed by Assura houses Parkway Medical Group, which has seven GPs, and a branch surgery for Holmside Medical Group, which in total has ten GPs.
The specialist healthcare team at law firm Sintons, based in Newcastle, carried out all of the legal work on the new development.
Donna Aydon, Practice Manager at Parkway, said: “Everyone involved in this project has done a fantastic job and we hope our patients and visitors are all enjoying their new facilities here in Chapel House”.
Michael Foster, Practice Manager at Holmside, said: “This new development has taken quite some time to become a reality, but now the practices have taken up occupancy, everyone agrees it was well worth the wait.
“We are thrilled to have secured a long-term future for primary care in the heart of Chapel House estate, in a development which is both welcoming and designed to meet the needs of modern healthcare practices.”
Hilary Parker, lead Partner in Sintons’ healthcare team, said: “This is a fantastic development, and while it has taken several years to see the plans come to fruition, the Chapel House community now has unrivalled GP and local health facilities. We are delighted to have helped this project to happen.”
