Adelaide Health Centre, Southampton
We believe that we have created a fantastic healthcare facility, which enables the delivery of first class health services, that provides the local population with a source of health information on how you can lead a healthy life. There are also a range of meeting rooms, which can be used by community groups and small businesses.
The building is a bright and vibrant centre offering a full range of health and social care services under one roof, along with a community café.
Transforming Community Care
The £11.5m Adelaide Health Centre created the opportunity for the community to receive a range of services in one convenient location. All of the services Adelaide Health Centre offers, improved healthcare to the Millbrook community and Southampton as a whole. The services are offered in a modern, state-of-the-art building that has been built in co-operation with local residents and colleagues from NHS Southampton. The Adelaide Health Centre benefits the local community by providing a wide variety of primary and community care services, as well as a GP led Health Centre open 8am – 8pm, 365 days a year.
A Centre for the Whole Community
The modern accommodation is arranged around a central atrium, which houses a café in the waiting area that can be used by patients and local residents. Designed to be in keeping with its surroundings, the building’s opening at the back leads onto a wildlife garden, providing a therapeutic environment. The centre was built in co-operation with the local residents, to improve local ownership of the building and create an enviroment for the patients and residents to enjoy.
The Adelaide Health Centre was built under the Government’s Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) scheme. The building clearly demonstrates LIFT’s capacity and procurement route. The building opened in October 2009 and has recently opened a brand new pharmacy at the Adelaide Health Centre that will complement the GP surgery.
