Audley Health Centre
Audley, United Kingdom
NHS North Staffordshire
Providing a new home for a semi-rural teaching practice based in a village conservation area was a tall order for Prime’s Staffordshire LIFTCo partnership Prima 200, especially with virtually no suitable building plots available.
The solution came when the village cricket club released land for a new temporary surgery, allowing a new build on the practice’s existing site. Having attracted an additional 644 patients to the practice within the first 9 months of operation, the popular new centre is improving local access to services and creating an environment that patients love.
The health centre is one of the hubs of the community – it’s a big part of people’s lives here. Everyone’s delighted with it. The patients love it – they can’t quite believe it when they walk in. It’s what the patients in Audley deserve.”
