Station Medical Centre

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.

Project Overview

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.

A video of Station Medical Centre is available here.

  • I’ve been very impressed with the whole team at ONE. I have nothing but positive things to say about the quality of the design, the way the project has been delivered and the performance of the whole team. With such a collaborative team experienced in Healthcare, ONE always understood the user's needs. The team were experts at transforming restrictions into opportunities for the scheme. There were challenges surrounding the listed building and physical site constraints, but by having one point of contact and access to a multi-disciplinary team under one roof, a solution was always available. I know all the users will be thrilled with the outcome, I certainly am.

Project Benefits

  • Value for Money -

    The team knows how to deliver cost efficient space designs, how to plan to make the most of the area available and how to overcome site constraints. Here working with a third-party developer, we delivered a cost-effective healthcare scheme at just over £2,000/m².

  • Fabric first approach offers sustainable solutions with long term savings for users -

    The building design incorporates materials chosen for their thermal performance, reducing the requirement for additional technologies such as air conditioning.

  • Collaborative working to deliver a fully supported scheme -

    ONE worked closely with GPs, staff, patients, community groups, local residents and a third party developer to create a shared vision for the new building. This involved a series of design workshops and consultation sessions to shape the design and resulted in plans for the centre being unanimously approved by Herefordshire Council.
