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?
The practice’s existing surgeries are outdated, undersized and fall well below modern healthcare premises standards. The existing buildings act as a significant constraint on the Practices, limiting the number and range of services GPs can provide for patients.
There is not enough space for consultations or primary care staff, and car parking is limited. The team has to work with irregular consulting room layouts, narrow corridors, low beams and steps, which create inefficiencies and do not meet the accessibility requirements for patients with disabilities. The new building will create the purpose-built space needed for additional GP appointments and to facilitate the integration of new and enhanced services – designed to comply with all of the latest standards and to be fully accessible.
The two surgeries have a combined patient list of 31,407, with a projected future patient list of 40,000.
The new premises will provide adequate surgery accommodation to meet the challenge of imminent population growth.

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.
