New GP Surgery for Nazeing

Written on . Posted in Community, Older people, Residents, Waltham Abbey, Your area, Your community

People living in the Nazeing area can look forward to a brand new state of the art GP premises early next year. The former police houses in North Street have been demolished making way for the new primary care premises.

The new primary care premises will be home to GPs and nurse practitioners. The premises will also have facilities for specialist clinics such as diabetes, heart conditions, respiratory conditions and minor surgery. It is replacing the current primary care premises located in temporary accommodation on private land in Paynes Lane.

Building work is expected to take 12 months which means the health professionals will be able to move in early 2009.

The PCTs project manager Ann-Marie Grant says: “The old police houses have been demolished which is quite a milestone. It now means the developers can get on site to start building the new modern purpose built primary care facilities that people in Nazeing want.”

Catherine O’Connell, the PCTs locality director hopes that more people will register with the GP practice now they know exactly where the new premises will be. She said: “All of the people currently registered with the Nazeing Valley Health Centre will automatically move to the new premises when they are built. The practice list is open so local people not already registered can do so and they will move to the new premises as well. It’s an exciting time and we’re looking forward to providing even more primary care services in the future.”
