Langwith’s ‘outdated’ medical centre set for replacement

Construction contractor, Stepnell, and specialist care sector developer, Brackley Investments, have celebrated the start of construction on a new NHS medical centre to replace Langwith Medical Centre, a primary care base in Derbyshire run by Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust. Brackley has appointed Nottingham-based Stepnell to the £1.1 million construction contract to deliver the facility, which will be located within sight of the current ‘outdated’ practice premises, on Langwith’s Main Street.

Designed by Thomas Wilson Architects, and set for completion this September, the single-storey brick building will be four times larger than the current medical centre, and will provide a wider range of services, with specialist accommodation for health visitors, district and community nurses, and therapists.

Bolsover District Council and Langwith Parish Council support the new development; the new medical centre is being built on part of the village recreation ground. The project is supported by Hardwick Clinical Commissioning Group. Once the building is completed, Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust will be tenants, providing the direct patient care.

Pictured during a special event marking the start of construction are representatives from Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust, Bolsover District Council, Langwith Parish Council, the Patient Participation Group from Langwith Medical Centre, the Centre’ s Dr Oyewole Salako and practice manager, Rachael Carter, representatives from  North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group, and construction contractor Stepnell (contracts manager, Liam Chapman, senior quantity surveyor, Daniel Roberts, site manager Luke Herald, and Marketing manager Gemma Meekings), and Brackley Investments director of project management, David Brill.
