Changes at doctors’ surgery
A rural north Norfolk doctors' surgery is being transformed with a new extension and the complete refurbishment of the existing building.
Aldborough Surgery needs the extra space because it is becoming a training practice for GPs and nurses and to cater for a growing number of patients, according to practice manager Julie Grey.
The extension work is being funded by NHS Norfolk and will house ground-floor facilities including a new reception area, office space, treatment room and consulting room, with an upstairs teaching and training area, combined with a meeting room which will be available to outside organisations, as well as for patient groups.
The existing surgery, built in 1993, is also being updated and refurbished and will include a new and expanded dispensary area.
The four-doctor surgery is headed by partners Philip Wood and Mark Fleming and currently has nearly 3,000 registered patients. Work is expected to be finished in October and the surgery will stay open throughout.
