New Prestbury Medical Centre is Assura Group’s 100th project

Assura Group has completed its 100th development at Prestbury in Wolverhampton. Work on Prestbury Medical Centre in Wolverhampton commenced in May 2022, and was completed on 29 June this year, with the new £6 m facility set to bring together two local surgeries with more than 14,500 patients, re-locating from premises that were not fit for purpose.

Assura CEO, Jonathan Murphy, said: “We are proud to have supported the delivery of healthcare for two decades, providing high-quality premises that serve the needs of health professionals and patients in a primary care setting. The new Prestbury Medical Centre in Wolverhampton will provide an essential new home to two re-locating GP practices, serving a growing patient list of over 14,500 people, and allowing additional health services to be moved out of hospital into a community setting.

He continued: “We are pleased to have again worked with Medcentres to deliver the much-needed community facility, and that our funding approach has allowed further sustainability enhancements to be made for the benefit of the GPs, health professionals, and patients, that will use the building. As a leading developer in our sector, we have completed 100 buildings over the course of our 20-year history – delivering modern, fit-for-purpose facilities such as this which are vital for the long-term delivery of community health services that ease the pressures currently being faced by the NHS.”

As well as providing modern premises, the new medical centre boasts additional training capacity, a greater range of community and out-of-hospital services, and a telehealth hub to support digital health care delivery. Assura says that the new medical centre will also benefit from its ‘commitment to sustainability’, with a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certification, and an EPC rating of ‘A’, achieved through the use of air source heat pumps, EV charging points, and natural ventilation. The building also incorporates 70 m2 of photovoltaic panels on the roof.

Michael Arnold, Development director at Medcentres plc, said: “Working with Assura to create the Prestbury Medical Centre has been a seamless process. We’ve collaborated on a number of buildings over the years and it’s brilliant to see that this represents the 100th complete development for the team. The interiors of the new building also reflect the ‘Designing for Everyone’ toolkit we launched in 2022, which seeks to support GP practices to improve their built environments for people with disabilities and conditions such as dementia, neurodiversity, and anxiety.”

The building is 100% let to the GPs on a 25-year lease, with open market rent reviews every three years, and is a priority project for the NHS Black Country Integrated Care Board.
