CHATFIELD HEALTH CARE RECEIVES SHARE OF NHS ENGLAND PRIMARY CARE INFRASTRUCTURE FUND - PATIENTS WILL BENEFIT FROM INVESTMENT IN DEVELOPING THE SURGERY
Chatfield Health Care’s patients will benefit from a major NHS funding boost to improve local GP facilities. The surgery will receive £79,008 from the NHS England Primary Care Infrastructure Fund. Together with over £50,000 of investment from the practice it will fund the creation of 5 new consultation rooms and an additional clinical training suite. This will mean the surgery will be able to accommodate more doctors and clinical staff in order to meet the healthcare needs of its growing population, as well as the capacity to develop the range of services currently offered to its patients.
The NHS England Primary Care Infrastructure Fund is a national funding programme to support GP practices to make improvements to services for local patients including more modern, expanded facilities and the use of new technologies.
Dr. Shah, of Chatfield Health Care, states: “Our building is now unable to accommodate the growing number of health care professionals that we need to provide the high level of clinical care our patients want and have come to expect. Therefore, we have identified a pressing and legitimate need for alterations to our existing premises. We intend to bring into the realm of NHS primary medical care areas of the existing premises not previously used for primary medical purposes, and to reconfigure our existing NHS primary medical care areas to improve servicew and garner greater capacity. Within the current building, we will alter the existing rooms and internal structure to create additional consulting rooms to accede to the above demands of providing good clinical care.”
