Ivel Medical Centre is showcasing plans for its new, refurbished premises at the Acorn Centre on Chestnut Avenue - opposite the public car park and next to the ambulance and fire stations.

On Saturday 1 November from 2 - 4pm, it is hosting a drop-in session at the new premises for patients and the public to look at the new surroundings and the architect’s plans, and talk to staff from the practice and Central Bedfordshire Council about the move.

Work to refurbish the premises will begin early in 2015, with a view to the practice moving in autumn 2015.

Dr William Hollington, a senior partner and GP at the practice said: “Securing new premises for our GP practice has been an ongoing project for many years, during which time our patients have been very supportive. We would like to thank them for their patience and continued loyalty whilst we have worked towards a solution suitable for all concerned.”

The practice is working in partnership with Central Bedfordshire Council to deliver this exciting new opportunity.

Councillor Maurice Jones, executive member for corporate resources, said: “The £1.4million that Central Bedfordshire Council is spending to refurbish the Acorn Centre shows our commitment to ensuring the health and wellbeing of our residents, as well as meeting the future needs of a growing population.

“We are delighted to have been able to help Ivel Medical Centre to find a new home where staff will be able to build on the excellent work which they already do, as well as supporting the community for many years to come.”

Further information regarding on the move and new premises will be available after 1 November from the GP practice.
