Following a rigorous national selection process, GPI was appointed to partner the South Shore GP Consortia and NHS Blackpool PCT to procure a new medical centre for the South Shore community. The need for top class health facilities was a significant part of the PCT’s vision and Blackpool Council’s “Regeneration Plan” to completely transform the town by 2020.
Due to the size of the facility (one of the biggest GP centres in the UK) the project presented a significant challenge in co-ordinating and balancing the number of different users and services the building would accommodate, without compromising individual functionality.
