An extensive refurbishment programme, fuelled by a £1.4m loan from Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, will bring two medical practices into one enhanced premises.

Shinwell Medical Centre, a well-established practice in Horden, County Durham, is channelling investment into a renovation programme designed to increase capacity and improve surroundings for both patients and staff. With lending support from Lloyds Bank, the project will also include an extension to the premises which will house the Horden Group Practice when it relocates from its previous site.

Modern setting

The investment is a significant step forward, says Joseph Chandy, Practice Manager and Partner at Shinwell Medical Centre. “The redevelopment of the practice will enable us to create a welcoming environment for our patients and allow us to accommodate the Horden Group Practice. Patients and staff have been using outdated facilities, so we’re pleased to be able to provide a new and modern setting for both practices.”

The redeveloped premises will also feature a training centre for junior doctors looking to pursue a career in general practice, he adds. “The training space will play an important role in equipping the next generation of GPs with the skills needed to provide the patient population with the highest quality care. Lloyds Bank has been integral in helping us make the changes to the building and we’re grateful for the team’s continued support to our family over the decades.”

“The nature of primary healthcare is evolving, with practices coming together to operate in larger medical centres becoming more common. Our Healthcare team understands the changing needs of the sector and offers informed, tailored guidance and support.”
