Region’s newest GP surgery opens its doors

A purpose-built surgery has recently opened after SURGO Construction, one of the region’s most respected contractors handed over the £3million project.

After a 45-week construction programme, the finishing touches were applied to Queens Road Surgery, Shotley Bridge, in plenty of time for the practice to decant from its original location - 400 yards along the road - which it had long since outgrown.

Acting as developer on the scheme, Queens Road Surgery appointed SURGO to build the much larger facility after it acquired land in the grounds of Shotley Bridge Hospital.

The new two-storey building featuring a curved rendered façade, provides the practice with a great deal more space from which to treat patients. It has also enabled the practice to expand its services and the type of treatments available to patients, including minor surgery.

Speaking about the project, Dr English, GP lead for estates at Queens Road Surgery, said:

“Embarking on a project of this type when you have not done anything like it before can be worrying and challenging. However, SURGO Construction has been incredibly supportive from conception to completion of the new building. Often going above and beyond the call of duty the site team were very responsive when issues arose, did what they said they would do when they said they would do it and basically held our hands throughout and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the company to other practices thinking of doing the same.

“From a practice/patient’s perspective, we are now able to provide a wider range of treatments with dedicated treatment rooms, whereas before, the rooms often had to be shared between specialisms. This means, we are able to operate far more efficiently. Also, we now have visiting specialists who can perform minor surgery, saving patients from travelling to hospitals further afield.”

The new building also incorporates an on-site pharmacy.

Speaking about the completed project, director, Jeff Alexander, said: “This latest project is a good example of how, by appointing SURGO, a medical practice without any experience of either development or construction, can successfully build a new surgery. Because of our flexible approach, we are able to work with clients, particularly those without past experience, providing support and guidance as well as a team they feel comfortable working with.

“We see the health sector as an area of growth and are currently in discussions with other practices about similar projects.”
