Brock Carmichael completes Medical Centre

Liverpool-headquartered architect Brock Carmichael has completed work on a £5.5 million new medical centre in St Leonards, Hastings. The three-storey 20,000 sq ft building houses two GP surgeries and a pharmacy in Bexhill Road next to West St Leonards Community Centre. It was designed and built to BREEAM Excellent with rooftop HVAC plantroom, 26 consulting rooms, two GP surgeries, pharmacy, six treatment rooms and a skype-enabled consulting and training suite.

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.”
