Derby Open Access Centre to move into the new Lister House Surgery as final stages of build are completed.
The £4.3 million development, which is due for completion in June 2009 was designed by One Medical with KMB Architects and is being developed by Lindum Construction.
This landmark building for Lister House Surgery is an exciting new development which will serve 15,000 patients in the city of Derby providing much needed services. The new building will also house the Derby Open Access Centre and a dedicated pharmacy. It will incorporate a wide range of services and facilities including: drug advisory services, sexual health clinic, education and training facilities, a dedicated minor surgery facility, a physiotherapy suite and a counselling suite.
Dr Peter Moss, a GP Partner from the Lister House Surgery said, "The new building will be the finest clinical facility Derby has yet seen. It has been designed and built with patients in mind."
Rachel Beverley-Stevenson, Chief Executive Officer of One Medical added:
"I am delighted that we have reached the final stages of this development. One Medical has worked closely with the doctors, the PCT and the council to ensure we meet all the requirements of the local residents. We are also proud to house both the Derby Open Access Centre and a pharmacy in the new building."
Prem Singh, Chief Executive of Derby PCT also added, "We are very pleased to be associated with the development of the new Lister House Surgery and would like to congratulate the practice on making their vision a reality. Not only will this provide improvement for the surgeries' patients but the new facility will also enable the PCT to provide a permanent home for our new GP-Led health centre.
