The purpose of this website is to provide important information to patients, staff and visitors throughout the duration of the construction project.
The Wantage Health Centre renovation and extensions construction project
What works are being carried out?
The health centre will be extended to give Newbury Street Practice and Church Street Surgery nine more clinical rooms each. As well as providing more space for patient services, the building will get LED lighting and a new replacement boiler to make the building more energy efficient. The works will see the pharmacy moved into the middle of the building as part of a new shared core between both practices.
Why is this project needed ?
Wantage Health Centre is shared by the Newbury Street Practice, Church Street Surgery, Oxford Health, Lloyds pharmacy and after the renovations have been completed there will be space for a new tenant.
The area served by the health centre is seeing a significant growth in population and, specifically in Wantage, Grove and adjoining villages, more than 4,000 homes are set to be built by 2030.
The number of patients using both practices has risen by almost 10% since April 2018 – meaning even more demand on their space and services.
