Work has now been completed on a full refurbishment of Wilsden Medical Practice near Bradford. The improvements not only create a better environment for staff and patients alike, but the existing building has been adapted to be more sustainable and meet Government requirements for NHS energy efficiency. With a new long term lease in place, the GPs and community alike can be assured of the ongoing GP services in their local area for many years to come.
The MCD team and some of our partners and advisers enjoyed an afternoon out at “Monopoly Lifesized” in London’s West End.
A good afternoon was had by all, but a special mention to the winning team, Becky, Steve, Jen and David C, for building an impressive property empire and for winning on the last roll of the dice.
The MCD team recently visited our new surgery in Coxheath, Maidstone.
We enjoyed lattes and cappuccinos from the in-house coffee shop, and then had a guided tour of the new building. The view from the first floor waiting room across the Kent countryside must be one of the best in the country: not a bad place to wait for your appointment. read more…

St Peter’s Medical Centre in central Brighton is undergoing a dramatic renovation that will see the size of the surgery treble. To reduce the disruption to patients and ensure services can continue operating throughout the build, the extension and upgrade are happening in two phases.
We are delighted that the residents of Coxheath and the surrounding area near Maidstone, Kent, are now enjoying the benefits of the brand new state-of-the-art environmentally efficient Greensand Health Centre. The building was designed with it’s rural setting in mind and the large barn-like windows flood the building with natural light.
Trinity Medical Centre, Hove, has once again been recognised for its beauty. The once derelict church was transformed by MCD into a stunning, award-winning medical centre – the perfect place to go to improve your health. This time it is the Daily Mail who has praised it and ranked it as the second prettiest surgery in Britain. We would of course have ranked it number one, but who are we to argue.
- We actively keep buildings in good order, fending off (as much as possible) disruptive events caused by any fabric defects or deterioration. Preventative action pays off, as shown at Monifieth Surgery.
