In an era where quality healthcare and integrated health and care services are of paramount importance, Willmott Dixon’s latest healthcare hub, Grove View in Dunstable, delivered with Central Bedfordshire Council and the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care Partnership (ICP), emerges as a shining example of innovation and excellence, says Anastasia Chyrsafi, Strategic Framework manager (Health). Here she explains how the new facility harnesses Cura – a suite of pre-designed modules which can be assembled into healthcare buildings ‘to suit the unique needs of each community’.
Grove View Integrated Health and Care Hub in Dunstable – designed by Penoyre & Prasad and LLP / ECE Architecture – redefines healthcare delivery by combining cutting-edge design, state-of-the-art facilities, and a patient-centred approach. With a focus on early engagement, placemaking, and an innovative standardised model for delivery, Grove View aims to enhance patient and service-user experience, improve access to care, and promote overall wellbeing at the community’s heart. The new facility integrates health and care providers to deliver health and wellbeing services for the local community. Delivered with support from the Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes ICP, and Central Bedfordshire Council, it will serve around 50,000 people in the local area, providing accessible healthcare provision for all.
The four-storey 6,375 m2 health and care hub offers a wide range of primary and community care services and voluntary sector activities, including general practice, social care, mental healthcare, services for children and people with long-term conditions, and dental suites, to name just a few. Bringing these services together in one place provides personalised, easy access, holistic care for all patients.
