The Dove Primary Care Centre
Birmingham, United Kingdom
Local GP practice; Birmingham East and North PCT
Located on Dovedale Road and within the 90 acre Perry Common housing regeneration area, the landmark centre provides enhanced accommodation for a GP teaching practice and a wide range of community healthcare services.
Delivered by Prime’s LIFT partnership, BaS LIFT, a notable feature of the building is the stunning community inspired artwork used to decorate the centre, created by a local artist working with residents and local school children.
In addition to a minor surgery suite, pharmacy and an increased range of services, from physiotherapy and community nursing to triage and orthopaedic clinics, the centre is home to the Witton Lodge Community Association – a voluntary sector housing association and charity.
It’s vital that the community ‘owns’ the centre. It isn’t all about the building. Good personal relationships have to be built along with the bricks and mortar.”
