Broomfield Park Medical Centre
Extension Update January 2018
Many months of planning has gone into Broomfield Park’s future extension. We are now able to confirm that we will be starting work on 26th Feb 2018.
The project is to include 7 additional clinical rooms to meet our current clinical staffing levels needs. The extension is due to take approx 50 weeks. During this period there will be a temporary reception area, temporary waiting area and limited space for staff to work in. We have worked alongside Health and Safety professionals and have devised plans of how to run the practice during the build to ensure services continue as normal. We must maintain the safety of staff, patients and visitors on site at all times.
What do the changes mean for patients:
- Due to the size of the build the car park will not be available for parking. It is our intention to provide a turning circle with drop off zone only with no waiting. This decision has not been taken lightly and has been made by assessing the Health and Safety of all staff, patients and visitors.
- During this time we ask staff, patients and visitors to find alternative parking as we will not have any parking facilities available. We also ask that no vehicles to be parked in front of the gates as this is private land and not owned by the surgery. The area outside of our gates is for the residents of neighbouring houses only.
- The public entrance on Broomfield Place will also be closed from when the build starts for approximately 6 months. There is a public footpath between Broomfield Place and Spon End.
We fully appreciate that during the extension build there will be some disruption. However, in order for this project to be complete and meet the needs of the practice we all have to work with the temporary disruption. Thank you for your patience and co-operation during this time.
