KELSALL'S NEW MEDICAL CENTRE MOVES ONE STEP CLOSER
Artist's Impression of New Doctors' Surgery
The Patient Participation Group is pleased to be able to report that the legal agreements are now in place to enable construction work to start on site. The Medical Practice is to be highly commended for keeping the new surgery project on track whilst dealing with all the enormous clinical demands arising from the Covid-19 emergency. Doing both things at the same time has been very challenging and we very much appreciate their commitment. Now the only remaining issue for the start of the build is the limitations that the Covid-19 measures place on the construction industry getting back to work
The Wellbeing Hub will be constructed at the same time as the new surgery. The legal agreement between the Medical Practice and the PPG has been agreed in principle but is not yet in the form of a legal contract. The Heads of Terms for the 125 year lease of the Wellbeing Hub has been agreed with Assura plc who will own both the Medical Centre and the Wellbeing Hub but the lease is not yet in final form. So, we are a long way down the path of completing all the necessary legal agreements but we’re not quite there yet.
The Kelsall Medical Surgery will be relocated into this new purpose-built Medical Centre which will be built on land behind the new Morris Dancer. The artist’s impressions of the new Doctors' Surgery (shown above and below) are taken from the approved planning application.
Funding for the new surgery will be provided by the West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group on behalf of the NHS. In addition, the Kelsall village community has raised £130,000 which will be used to build and equip the Wellbeing Hub which will be attached to the new medical centre. When construction has started, we shall be launching our next fundraising campaign to raise the £33,000 needed to repay those who bought bonds.
