Alverton, Sunnyside and Romellyn surgeries have some exciting news about St Clare Medical Centre!!!!
We are extremely excited to announce that land at St Clare has now been purchased by 15 partners involved in each of the practices and demolition and building work commenced on Monday the 6th of November 2017. Brady Construction have the contract to build the Medical Centre with an anticipated 52 week turn around. The vision for this new Medical Centre began almost 20 years ago and has taken many different pathways over this time. Several GPs who were involved with the project all those years ago have now retired and the great facilities the new building will offer is part of their legacy.
On the 1st of December 2017 we welcome Ian Roberts to the St Clare team, who has been employed as Transition and Integration Manager for the project. He will commence work on an 18 month contract to take the pressure off of the current managers and help all three practices move smoothly and efficiently to the new building.
The three practices have developed independently over time and thus have understandable variations in some aspects of ethos and working practices. However all subscribe to common core values including:
- Highest possible standards of health care
- Patient centred care
- Innovation & early adoption
- Highly valued staff
- Strong working relationships with other members of the care community – professional, voluntary sector and family members.
