Remodelling works at one of Sheffield’s health centres have enabled a GP practice to relocate into modern, fit-for-purpose facilities.

A refit of Darnall Primary Care Centre completed in April 2021, creating a new reception desk and additional admin rooms have enabled nearby York Road Surgery to relocate into larger, more modern premises, improving patient services presently inhibited by a lack of space.

The project was completed on behalf of Community 1st Sheffield as the building owner and the head tenant, Community Health Partnerships.

Jon Keegan, General Manager of Community 1st Sheffield, said: “Darnall Primary Care Centre was designed with flexibility in mind to enable the building to change in response to the needs of the local community. We are delighted that this project enables more local patients to access these excellent facilities.”

The building continued to provide services to registered patients throughout the works. The construction and property management teams appointed by Community 1st worked effectively to minimise any operational disruption to the building. They completed the project 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

Community 1st Sheffield has developed a total of seven primary care centres across the city for our local NHS and local authority partners. Community 1st Sheffield has also undertaken many minor works and property adaptations to reflect the changing demands of Primary Care services in Sheffield. These include including the completion of variation works to Jordanthorpe Medical Centre.
