Project description

This innovative and exciting project was undertaken for a Devon based Practice of 10 GPs, one of whom is Dr Michael Dixon, formerly Chairman of NHS Alliance.

The scheme includes core GMS space for the GPs together with additional space for PCT clinicians, a Pharmacy and a separate Complementary Therapy Suite which is leased privately to the GPs. Haven Health were delighted to work with such a forward thinking and progressive Practice on this development.

The site

The site was a challenge which we eventually overcame due to our contact with the Chief Executive of Tiverton Council. Following extensive negotiations, we were able to acquire a 2 acre greenfield site from Persimmon Homes who had just been refused residential planning consent on the site. The scheme has received great acclaim and the architects have recently received a design award for the building.

The building

The external design and appearance reflect the rural setting of the building whilst the interior offers light, space and a modern healthcare environment. The building was officially opened by HRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
