St Leonards Medical Centre is designed to act as a modern health hub for up to 20,000 patients in the south west area of Hastings. It will house the Carisbrooke Surgery and the High Glades Medical Centre on Bexhill Road and provide onsite parking for patients’ use. As a health hub it will be able to facilitate services currently given by other providers, more locally as well as easing pressure on the local hospital.

Brock Carmichael’s design and access statement states: “The need for this development is very clear. Over the past few years, West St Leonards has had to cope with the closure of two surgeries, South Saxon and Essenden Road, with patients having to travel further to access health care.”

The building, funded and acquired by Warrington based specialist primary care investors, Assura plc, was built by south east main contractor Westridge Construction Ltd. both to time and budget. Construction commenced in August 2019 and continued through the pandemic. 

Ashley Seymour, senior development manager at Assura, said: “We are delighted to have helped this important primary care centre come to fruition and really pleased with the team who have managed to deliver it on time despite the pandemic. We are confident that the new facility will transform healthcare provision in this area and have a positive long-term impact on the community.”
