Works on a major refurbishment project for Stokesley Health Centre are complete. This was a project managed by Durham and Tees Community Ventures.
From an outdated facility, struggling to meet the needs of an expanding patient list and modern healthcare services, the building has been transformed into a bright, contemporary health centre for the future benefit of patients and staff.
The £1.9m refurbishment, funded by an NHS capital grant, included low carbon measures such as more energy efficient heating and lighting, a new roof, and thermally efficient windows. Internal alterations to the layout have made better use of space to improve patient flow within the building and interiors have had a complete overhaul to create light, uplifting surroundings. Patients are now greeted with a new entrance lobby and a spacious reception area with new seating, artwork, and a warm welcome. Acoustic panelling is used to further enhance the feel of the new space, doubling as artwork to create wall features and a canopy above the new reception desk.
As mentioned before the project has been managed by Durham and Tees Community Ventures and constructed by local contractor Acomb Construction. Partners in the project include the site’s landlord, NHS Property Services, NHS North Yorkshire CCG, P+HS Architects and the GP practice in residence, Dr Duggleby and Partners.
Our Development Manager Scott Clarkson said the following after the successful completion of this project: “It has been a pleasure working with the numerous stakeholders to develop and deliver what is a truly transformational scheme. The project has demonstrated just what can be achieved with older buildings and the success of the scheme is largely down to it having been a real team effort.”
