Project Overview

  • The development responds to Government policy by providing patients with services closer to their home and the crucial support of family and friends during their treatment. 
  • It incorporates a café, sports hall, gym, shop and occupational therapy services.
  • The proposal resulted in a substantial investment of nearly £20 million into the local area and bringing between four and five million of annual revenue to the local economy.
