A behind the scenes look at Stroud’s new £6.5m surgery

MOST READ

As construction gathers pace on a new medical centre, Stroud Times was given a behind-the-scenes look at the former Woolworths and Poundland store in King Street.

Stroud’s brand new medical centre will deliver GP services to more than 15,000 patients in town and is due to be completed next September.

The project will create a new £6.5m town centre facility for two of the town’s GP practices, Locking Hill Surgery and Stroud Valleys Family Practice, who will merge to become the Five Valleys Medical Partnership next April.

Both practices have outgrown their current buildings. With the local population set to increase over the next 15 years, the GP partners and NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) identified the need to move to more modern premises.

Patients using the adjacent Five Valleys car park will be eligible to park free for 90 minutes.

Ash Loveridge and Matt Bigwood joined Stuart Sedgwick-Taylor, Chief Operating Officer at Locking Hill Surgery for a guided tour of the former Poundland and Woolworths site.
