The long-awaited relocation of The Manor Surgery, currently located on Middle Street in Beeston town centre, has moved a step nearer following the submission of detailed plans to Broxtowe Borough Council which, if approved, will see the Practice relocate to a site close by on Chilwell Road.

The existing GP Surgery has continually delivered excellent services but has outgrown the property following the population growth in and around Beeston, the closure of other surgery facilities in the town and the continuing move from the NHS to provide more clinical services within GP surgery premises.

The new building will be constructed on a site opposite Beeston Parish Church, adjacent to the town centre shopping and leisure facilities and next to the main public transport hub a few metres from the main bus and train stops.

The existing Manor Surgery provides around 445 sq m of floor space – the new surgery will provide 970 sq m which will be purpose built to the most up to date standards for surgery accommodation, capable of delivering a wide range of clinical services to the population of Beeston.  The surgery has been future proofed to allow for the projected growth in patient numbers – currently the surgery has a patient list size of 13,000, which is expected to grow to around 18,000 patients by 2025.

In addition, the new design provides space for a new Pharmacy unit and 265 sq m of additional clinical accommodation which will provide complimentary services alongside the main surgery function, creating new employment opportunities in the centre of the town.

Louis Mok, GP Partner at Manor Surgery said:

“The Partners and staff at Manor Surgery are really excited to see the plans submitted for the new surgery on Chilwell Road.  The location is ideal, prominent, easy to find and accessible by public transport.  We have been keen to ensure the new building is designed to the best possible standards.  The property will benefit from Air Source Heat Pumps and a range of other energy saving facilities which will future proof the property for years to come and reduce our carbon footprint. This development will allow us to provide the best possible clinical care to the ever-growing patients in Beeston within top quality surgical premises.”

Lynne Sharp, Associate Director of Estates at NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG, said:

“We are pleased that plans for the new premises for Manor Surgery are progressing and that the practice will be able to deliver patient care in a modern and fit for purpose building for many years to come.”

If the plans are approved, it is proposed to start construction in mid 2022 with completion of the new much needed community clinical facility delivered by early Summer 2023.
