Breeze Hill Heighbourhood Health Centre, Liverpool
Breeze Hill Neighbourhood Health Centre houses Walton Medical Centre, Grey Road Medical Centre, Primary Care Trust Community Services, and a Lloyds Pharmacy.
The eye catching building is sited at a prime location at the junction of Liverpool’s ring road and the busy arterial route of Rice Lane. The building has been designed to respond to the demands of the site which is dominated by the proximity of a large concrete flyover. Thus, the building provides a new frontage to both Queens Drive and Rice Lane.
Construction on the project commenced in September 2006, and the building was officially handed over to the Liverpool PCT on February 1st 2008.
As well as the two GP surgeries, a wide range of community primary care services are provided from the building.
Transforming Community Services
As well as the two GP Surgeries, a wide range of community primary care services are also provided, including:
- Children’s Health
- Nurse Led Treatment Rooms
- Diagnostic Suite
- Abacus Family Planning Clinic
- Diabetic Eye Screening
- IV Therapies
This allows the centre to provide both diagnostic and treatment services in the same place which offers the public a single point of service that was previously not provided.
Our experienced team of expert advisors offer a wide range of professional clinical NHS experience. The team works closely with the client, architect and end users to ensure that new buildings not only meet existing requirements, but are flexible enough to meet the ever changing needs of the modern health service.
A Centre for the Whole Community
Liverpool and Sefton Health Partnership’s (LSHP) experienced team works in close partnership with Primary Care Trusts, local authorities and other local stakeholders to provide modern, purpose built premises that are rooted firmly within the community and closer to patients’ homes.
