Work starts on healthcare facility worth £3.4m

Warehouse works in progress at Wakefield Hub

The commencement of ground works begin for the new Greenwood House Medical Centre in Burntwood, Staffordshire. A Midlands-based contractor, G F Tomlinson has started the works and is set for completion in September 2021.

This new £3.4 million medical facility will look to bring world-class healthcare facilities to the community. It also helps relieve pressure on local hospitals. The new single-story building will consist of 12 consulting rooms.

The new construction will include five treatment rooms, a healthcare and phlebotomy room, and a health education space with an adjoining pharmacy unit. Alongside, a new medical centre will be built on a site previously occupied by a residential care home.

The new building is giving a much-needed upgrade to the current healthcare facilities. The centre will also be replacing the services provided by the Darwin Medical Practice. Also, 61 onsite parking spaces will be created and the surrounding area will be landscaped.

The scheme is being funded by NHS England’s Estates and Technology Transformation Fund, which aims to improve healthcare services for patients throughout England by modernizing facilities and technology. 

G F Tomlinson has been selected to provide construction works for the site, and is procured through the Staffordshire County Council framework. This is the fifth project the contractor has procured through the framework since 2016.
