Refurbishment at Bowthorpe Health Centre
A major refurbishment of Bowthorpe Health Centre in Norwich has been completed, bringing huge benefits to staff and patients.NHS Property Services (NHSPS) has completed the £1.25 million project to the centre to ensure the building is CQC compliant and to improve the building’s accessibility and waiting areas.
NHS Norfolk approved the scheme last year and NHSPS has successfully managed to complete the significant refurbishment, in phases, so that services in the building could remain in full operation and disruption to patient services was kept to a minimum. The centre now provides patients and staff with a modern, safe, high quality environment in which to work and access health care services.
The changes included rationalising the clinical spaces and waiting areas that were provided throughout the building, bringing all the services together around a large central waiting area and installing, with a new shared reception, which allows staff to effectively assist patients visiting the centre. The re-design has also made much more efficient use of the building’s internal space and has created reconfigured CQC compliant consultation rooms.
Sonja Kerridge, Practice Manager, said: “I’m pleased with the final result. It will enable us to continue providing our patients with high quality services in an up-to-date, modern and safe environment.”
