When complete, The Meads Medical Centre will provide improved access to healthcare services via a new state of the art primary care medical centre with integrated pharmacy, at West Park in Uckfield.
The 10,400 sq ft, predominately two storey building is being developed by MedicX, a leading UK developer and investor of healthcare premises. The health care centre is expected to be completed in March 2013.
The GP practice of Dr Walbrook and Partners currently in Grange Road will relocate to the new premises, which will be situated in landscaped grounds with 35 car parking spaces.
Tony Coke, Primary Care Property Director, MedicX, commented:
“We are delighted to have reached this exciting stage in this project for Sussex. We recognise the huge benefits that the new healthcare facilities will bring to the local area and we are now focussed on maintaining the momentum to open the medical centre and welcome the first patients by March next year.”
Dr Emma Walbrook, Senior Partner, The Meads Medical Centre, added:
“I am very excited about our new premises and the fantastic facilities they will offer. As a predominantly rural community, providing a medical centre that is easily accessible by both car and public transport is very important. This new development has been long awaited by the local community and it’s great to see construction beginning. We look forward to moving in next spring.”
