A statement has been released to Stroud Times following news that the contractor responsible for building a new £6.5m medical centre had gone into administration.
On Sunday, we reported that Yorkshire-based contractors P.D.R Construction Limited had downed tools on the build of the new Five Valleys Medical Practice, which is due to open this autumn on the former Woolworths and Poundland unit on King Street.
The statement from the NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “Development of the new Five Valleys Medical Practice in Stroud is being led by Stroud Regeneration Limited which appointed PDR Construction as the main contractor for the refurbishment and partial rebuild of the retail unit on King Street.
“This development is a key priority for the CCG and the two GP practices, Locking Hill Surgery and Stroud Valleys Family Practice. They remain committed to providing improved and modern premises which will enable the practices to extend the range of services they provide for patients.
“The CCG and both practices are working closely with Stroud Regeneration Limited to assess the options, plan next steps and find a solution as quickly as possible.”
