Castle Bromwich patients will benefit from a major NHS funding boost to improve local GP facilities.
Bucklands End Lane Surgery has received £156,085 from the NHS England Primary Care Infrastructure Fund.
Together with £80,407 investment from the practice, it will fund the creation of two additional ground floor clinical rooms, a medical records room, reconfigured reception, refurbished meeting rooms and new automated doors to the main entrance.
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 use of new technologies.
Denise Young, Practice Manager at Bucklands End Lane Surgery, said: “This is really exciting news, both for the practice and for our patients. As a training practice the additional rooms will now allow us to expand our clinical areas and offer additional services.
“Work is due to start this week and should take around 15 weeks to complete. Hopefully there should not be too much disruption for patients.”
Paul Sherriff, NHS Birmingham CrossCity Clinical Commissioning Group’s Director of Operations and Corporate Development, added: “We are delighted that Bucklands End Lane Surgery has secured this funding, which will help to make a real difference for patients in Birmingham.”
