The new Praze-an-Beeble Medical Centre opened its doors to patients today. This is the fifth LIFT facility to be developed by Community 1st Cornwall.
The new building provides modern, purpose-built accommodation for the three GP practice, replacing premises which were inadequate for the services being delivered and offered no potential for expansion.
As well as providing modern, flexible premises for GPs, the new development also includes accommodation for health visitors, district nurses, counsellors, midwives, social services and an on-site dispensary.
Provision has also been made for a plug-in facility to provide additional capacity through the use of mobile units if required.
The provision of this new state-of-the-art facility through LIFT is a positive step forward in providing enhanced health and social care facilities for the Praze community.
