French Weir Health Centre was undersized to effectively deliver primary care services to its patient list size.
The existing building and grounds provided great potential for expansion with the building arranged as a traditionally built single storey surgery set within ample gardens and parking amenity.
Haldons undertook an RIBA Stage 2 feasibility based on providing a second storey extension to accommodate non-clinical support services, and internal alterations and refurbishment to the ground floor areas.
The additional first floor space created:
- Conference Room
- Staff area with changing and kitchen facilities
- Large open plan office with room for future admin staff increases
- New Practice Manager and Deputy Practice Manager offices with access to the Conference Room
- Staff toilets.
The creation of this first floor space increases future capacity for additional GP Consulting/Examination Rooms, Nurse Practitioner Rooms and Nurse Treatment Rooms.
