West Street Health Centre
Cumbria, United Kingdom
2 local GP practices; Cumbria Primary Care Trust
With two GP practices in the Cumbrian town of Aspatria exploring the possibility of new accommodation, Prime worked with both the Hill House and Prospect House surgeries to deliver a purpose-built shared facility with space for a pharmacy and offices for the local primary care trust.
Having secured a site within walking distance of the existing surgeries and with space for plentiful car parking, Prime has delivered a modern and integrated facility, offering a much improved standard of care. Accommodation for the two surgeries is arranged separately, each benefitting from their own reception and waiting area to retain a sense of individuality. In addition to a pharmacy and office space for the PCT, the centre provides community nursing, psychiatric services and health education facilities, as well as offering sessions run by the Citizens Advice Bureau.
We can do things here that we simply weren’t able to do before. Patients can now use the epilepsy clinic here instead of having to travel to Whitehaven or Cumbria.”
