Primary care property developer and investor, Assura Group, is developing a 16,000 sq ft health and social care development in Market Weighton.
The state-of-the-art centre will include a minor surgery suite, training rooms, and specialist clinics for conditions such as asthma, COPD, and diabetes with space for community services and visiting consultants.
The property will replace the existing premises of Dr Webster & Partners and provide both a pharmacy and space for community services.
The property forms part of a wider residential scheme currently under construction by David Wilson on Holme Road and facilitated by leading developer Lovel Developments.
LSP Developments are project managing the health centre development.
Assura Group currently has nine schemes on site, worth a combined total on completion of £39.9 million.
The company already own approximately 30 healthcare properties in the Yorkshire region.
Amanda Roddy, development manager at Assura Group said:
“Assura Group is committed to providing efficient and quality healthcare across our entire portfolio.
“This scheme will revolutionise the way healthcare is delivered in the area, improving health outcomes and helping to provide patients with more advanced care within the primary healthcare setting.”
Dr Clive Henderson, lead GP at Dr Webster & Partners, said:
“We are very pleased that construction has begun on our new premises. As our patient list continues to grow and expectations on medical practitioners change we need more facilities to develop our healthcare, and the new premises will help us to deliver a wider range of services in a more comfortable and safer environment.”
Philip Lovel of Lovel Developments said:
“Situated in the heart of a residential development, the new GP surgery is perfectly placed for convenient patient access.
“It has been a pleasure to work alongside Assura Group and LSP Developments on the project, and we look forward to seeing the site come to fruition over the coming months.”
The contractor on the site is Hobson & Porter, and the surgery was designed by architecture practice, Pearce Bottomley.
