Warrington-based healthcare landlord, Assura, has started construction in Bebington, Wirral, of a £3.5m GP surgery.
The 14,000 sq ft medical centre, a joint venture with LSP Developments, was designed by architects West Hart Partnership and is being built by Liverpool-based building contractor WH Snow. Completion is due in the summer of 2012.
Tom Cooke, development manager at Assura Group (LON:AGR), said: "Working in partnership with the GPs, local PCT and LSP Developments means that we can develop a leading healthcare facility for the people of Bebington."
Sue Ryder, practice manager at Kings Lane Medical Practice, added: "We are delighted that the building work for our new surgery has begun and we look forward to being able to offer our patients a more comprehensive healthcare service in their local area."
The building has been designed to incorporate substantial expansion space, which would potentially allow a second practice to relocate to the building in the future.
