GREENDALE CONSTRUCTION COMPLETE LIFEBOAT QUAY MEDICAL CENTRE IN POOLE
Dorset Chartered Builders, Greendale Construction Limited, has completed work on the £1.5 million project with the NHS Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group, which saw Carlisle House Surgery, Lagland Road, Poole, relocated to a modern, fit-for-purpose location in the Lifeboat Quay building off Holes Bay Road, Poole.
Lifeboat Quay Medical Centre will now offer its patients eight consulting rooms and three treatment spaces, as well as an interview room, staff welfare facilities, and an office base to allow an independent district nurse to operate from the surgery. Initially serving 6000 patients, the medical centre has been strategically designed and ‘future proofed’ to cater for the area’s growing population, and will eventually have the capacity for up to 13,000 patients, offering 84 parking spaces, with allocated spaces for disabled patients. The new location is also just 100 metres from a bus stop for patients using public transport.
Chris Kane, Director, Greendale Construction Limited said: “Greendale’s full fit-out of Lifeboat Quay Medical Centre, which included all new partitions, joinery, air conditioning, heating, lighting and security systems, will be a huge improvement to the current patients relocating from Carlisle House Surgery, as well as the growing population for this part of Poole. We are proud of our involvement with this project for the NHS Dorset CCG, and wish the staff and patients a smooth changeover on September 2nd.”
Diane McLaughlin from NHS Dorset CCG said: “This has been a great project to work on and we are all delighted with the new home for the patients and staff of Carlisle House Surgery which will offer people real benefits from day one once it is opened in early September.”
