Taw Hill Medical Practice
Taw Hill, Swindon, United Kingdom
Local GP Practice
Responding to a large increase in patient numbers and the need to offer an enhanced range of services to the local community, Taw Hill Medical Practice is an example of cohesive primary care, providing space for ten GP practitioners and specialist healthcare services, including endoscopy, midwifery, counselling and dermatology.
From the electronic patient records system, to the online appointment booking, smart card access and central atrium, Taw Hill Medical Practice represents a high level of innovation and skill. Taken from concept stage, through planning, construction and into operation within just two years, the project demonstrates how Prime’s detailed knowledge of planning, legals, design and funding has helped deliver an ambitious project within tight timescales and with a result that more than met GPs’ expectations.
In addition to a wide range of community services, the building accommodates two operating theatres for minor surgery, an ultrasound facility and a fully soundproofed room for audiology. Designed to offer flexibility for the future, the centre also provides space for visiting private services, such as acupuncture and sports massage therapy.
Whilst no-one wants to be sick, ironically it's the sort of building that people want to be in. Most of the patients come in to see us in our consulting rooms and the first thing they invariably say is: 'Breathtaking new building Doctor'.”
