Devonport Hill Surgery Starts Onsite...
The go ahead to start on site was given after many months of discussions between the practice, GPI, NHS England and NHS Northern, Eastern & Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group.
Dr Steven Nash, partner at the practice, said: “The residents and GPs of Devonport have had to wait a long time for suitable premises from which to receive and deliver modern general practice. With a full team of dedicated practice nurses, health care assistants, counsellors and 5 GPs, we look forward to providing healthcare from what will be a spacious, purpose-built health centre.”
The new building, adjacent to the Cumberland Centre on Damerel Close, will provide 853m2 of accommodation for 9,000 patients, and have 8 consulting rooms, 2 treatment rooms, an on-site pharmacy and 23 designated parking spaces. The building is scheduled to be completed in June 2015.
