Devizes integrated healthcare centre
The proposed site for the new, purpose built, modern, integrated healthcare centre is Marshall Road in Devizes next to the existing NHS Treatment Centre.
The new facility will replace existing services in Devizes Community Hospital and provide additional primary care capacity and enhanced primary care services alongside acute outreach and community services.
Funding for the development has been secured, subject to the normal business case process.
The Outline Business Case was approved by NHS England in May 2020 and an application for planning consent was submitted in June 2020. Work is now underway on the Full Business Case.
Construction will start in 2021 with the new building opening in 2022. BSW CCG is developing the business cases and is leading the project in partnership with NHS Property Services, who will develop the building.
Local GPs and other service providers, along with service users and patient groups have been involved with the plans to ensure they meet the needs of the local community.
