Devizes Health Centre
A state-of-the-art health and care facility is set to be built in Devizes after plans for the project have officially been given the green light.
Having been the subject of lengthy discussions for some time, the approval of plans means building work for the new Devizes Health Centre on land close to Marshall Road can begin in June 2021.
Construction work is expected to last approximately 12 months, with the doors to the new facility scheduled to open to patients in 2022.
The new build will be one of the region’s first integrated care centres, and will offer a home to a number of different health and care providers, all of whom will provide a variety of services to patients under the same roof.
As well as replacing the existing services at Devizes Community Hospital, the new facility will give local GPs additional clinical space needed for everyday care, and also the room to provide a number of enhanced services.
Some of the extra services that will be provided from the site include phlebotomy, physiotherapy, audiology, podiatry, diabetes and mental health.
The building of the new Devizes Health Centre will be overseen by NHS Property Services, which has worked with the CCG over the last few years in getting the £10.9 million project off the ground.
