Building Better Health has started work on Jubilee Gardens Primary Care Centre and Library, an NHS LIFT scheme.
The £4.9million, 2,100sqm scheme will replace the 1930s facilities, and aims to invigorate the community with a fresh approach to healthcare.
Planning approval was obtained in December 2007, with Financial Close reached in September of this year. The scheme is due for completion in early 2010.
Once complete, it will provide accommodation for three local doctors’ group practices as well as neighbourhood treatment and specialist facilities, including audiology. The centre will also act as base for community nursing.
Designed by Penoyre & Prasad, and being built by Willmott Dixon, the project will include a double height public foyer leading to a community meeting space. It will be quickly followed by the £5.4million Grand Union Village Primary Care Centre, another LIFT scheme for Ealing PCT that recently achieved Financial Close.
Chief Executive at Building Better Health, Sylvie Pierce, said, “Jubilee Gardens is a perfect example of how the public and private sectors can work in harmony to deliver high quality facilities that are a real asset to the community. Together, we are committed to providing high quality schemes that will revitalise the area and highlight the benefits of effective partnering.”
