A state-of-the-art GP surgery is to be built in Sheffield, offering patients in the area improved facilities such as more consultation rooms and a dedicated minor operations room.
The £1.82m New White House Surgery on Harborough Avenue, Manor, will replace the existing surgery as part of the city’s plan to revolutionise healthcare.
The modern development will offer two floors of treatment space, including 11 consulting rooms and better facilities for patients and staff.
A minor operations room and counselling rooms will also be available and the District Nursing Team will also be based at the practice.
Ken Staniland, practice manager at the White House Surgery, said: “The New White House Surgery will provide top quality training facilities such as meeting and seminar rooms for the use of trainees, GP registrars, house officers and medical students.”
It is hoped that the surgery, which is part of the Central Sheffield GP Consortium, will bring services closer to patient’s homes, eliminating the need to travel to hospital for routine procedures such as skin tag or mole removals.
By bringing the services into GP practices around the city, patients will be able to gain quicker access to treatment and care on their doorstep.
