Our Clients’ Needs
Dr McCorkindale said “we needed a larger building to suit our clinical care and to provide space for our growing practice”. The previous GP surgery was cramped and below current area standards and offered no room for expansion. “The limited size of the existing building meant that patient confidentiality was often compromised with the reception desk open to the undersized waiting area.” The practice was restricted in its ability to provide the services it wishes to offer. “Previously all our car parking was ‘on-street’ and close to a busy road junction. We were keen to have dedicated off-street parking for our staff and patients; particularly those requiring assistance.”
The Dentist, Andrew Leitch had more pressing needs; his previous premises having been destroyed by fire. “Our introduction to MCS could not have been timelier coming days after our fire. Although I had several options, the opportunity to create new, bespoke premises, suitable for the growth of the practice was extremely attractive for my team, our patients and our trainees.”
Both the GP and Dental practices needed the facilities to be provided within a tight timescale to accommodate existing lease arrangements. The Dentist was occupying temporary facilities following the damage to his original premises.
