BREEAM Excellent standard, ETTF funded new surgery at Storrington

New Eco-friendly NHS Medical Centre for West Sussex

The residents of Storrington and surrounding villages will soon be enjoying a new, state of the art, environmentally friendly GP surgery.

The new medical centre will be well over 3 times the size of the existing Glebe Surgery, complete with additional medical facilities and green extras such as electric vehicle charging points in order to achieve a high sustainability standard (BREEAM Excellent). There will also be an on-site pharmacy to serve The Glebe’s patients.

Nigel Ford, Project Director at specialist GP surgery developers, Medical Centre Developments, has been working with the doctors for a number of years to secure the new surgery. Despite NHS England’s current limited budget for investment in surgery developments, Nigel and the team were able to demonstrate the desperate need for a new surgery and successfully secured NHS funding for the project.

The building contractors are now on-site, with the main building due to be finished late 2019 and the entire site completed by spring 2020.
