Narrowcliff Surgery & Newquay Health Centre are intending to move to new replacement premises
What is being proposed?
A new, state-of-the-art medical centre to replace the premises at Newquay Health Centre and Narrowcliff Surgery, co-locating both practices under one roof. The building will provide purpose-built accommodation for the GPs and staff, future-proofing the practices for the long-term benefit of all patients.
Why do Narrowcliff Surgery & Newquay Health Centre need new premises?
Newquay is rapidly expanding and the current surgeries were built for significantly fewer people than they currently cater for. This has necessitated modifications of both surgeries to cope with demand, but these changes have also reduced the services and parking we have been able to offer to patients, as well as reducing the training opportunities for staff. Both surgeries are undersized for their current patient list size and without a solution this will worsen. There is no more room at either surgery to expand to the extent required. Consequently the two surgeries have worked together to develop a solution and secure primary care services for Newquay for the future.
The large new surgery will enable the practices to provide clinical services in appropriately sized rooms, improve access and parking and enable new services to be brought to Newquay. There will be state-of the art facilities and increased links with other NHS healthcare providers. The building will be built to the highest environmental standards.
The Assura Community Fund
Through its national community fund, Assura – the appointed developer for the scheme - offers small grants to health-improving charity projects in the communities around all new medical centres that it builds. It means that a local health project in Newquay can benefit from a grant, and this will be explored with local organisations as the proposed scheme moves ahead.
