ONE was appointed by Prime and subsequently novated to the Main Contractor, Speller Metcalfe, to design and deliver a new Primary Care Centre for Hereford Medical Group (HMG) on behalf of NHS Herefordshire and Worcestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) that would allow the consolidation of five GP practices into one new build medical hub.
The recently formed Hereford Medical Group (HMG) required a new central hub from which it could deliver core primary care services throughout Hereford.
The newly designed, highly sustainable and energy efficient building will provide a modern and inviting healthcare environment for patients who currently access their GP services through five other city practices. Once complete, patients will be able to access a full range of community primary care services all from under one roof.
In collaboration with a range of stakeholders including HMG staff, the developer and the Patient Participation Group, ONE’s multi-disciplinary team, designed a state-of-the-art BREEAM Excellent scheme with patient experience and efficiency at the core of the design.
On a constrained site, in close proximity to a Grade II listed train station, ONE has designed a health facility comprising of a 90+ landscaped car park, more than 50 clinical rooms, an admin suite, an educational learning centre and retail unit as well as allowing for future expansion.
The building is currently taking its form on site and is due to be completed in Autumn 2020.
