Plans for 33,000 sq ft university health centre approved
Plans for a new 33,000 sq ft health centre at the University of Nottingham have been approved.
The new Cripps Health Centre will replace an outdated former building that has been in use for 40 years.
The new building will include 31 GP consultation rooms, eight dental treatment rooms and five University of Nottingham Mental Health rooms, with 112 people working in the building.
It will be designed by CPMG Architects and project managed by Faithful and Gould.
The University of Nottingham Health Service is the largest single site General Practice in the UK, with a registered population of approximately 41,000 patients – a population which has grown from approximately 28,000 in 2005 (46%).
The University’s mental health and health promotion team is co-located in the Health Centre and this has delivered a range of benefits with regard to the management of difficult cases. The Practice also has close links with Disability Support and the Counselling Service.
The practice is a Midlands area leadership site and committed to delivering clinical research. It currently undertakes around twenty projects per year in conjunction with a variety of commercial organisations, NHS England, NUH and the University.
