Corfton Road Surgery To Be Redeveloped into Larger Health Centre
Practice to merge with Gordon House Surgery on Mattock Lane
Plans have been submitted to Ealing Council for the redevelopment of the Corfton Road Surgery that would see a large new health centre being built on the site.
The doctors’ practice has been based in the existing building for over 30 years. Since the current partnership (Dr Alex Fragoyannis and Dr Susru Sukumaran) took over the practice from Drs Lauder in 2011, it has seen the number of register patients grow hugely from under 3,000 patients to the current 8,500.
This has led to issues with the amount of space and the lease at 10 Corfton Road ended at the end of December 2020. The building as a whole was put up for sale by the owner.
The partnership were unable to purchase the building due to the asking price but they entered into collaboration with the One Medical Group, a specialist healthcare property company, and the Gordon House Surgery on Mattock Lane, with the aim of developing an extended GP surgery at the site.
QAD Architects submitted the building planning application on behalf of One Medical Group in mid-August 2021, which is now Live on the Ealing Council web site. If approved this multi-million-pound scheme is due to begin in Spring 2022.
As part of this development, Corfton Road Surgery will merge with Gordon House Surgery with the combined patient list to having access to both the Corfton Road and Mattock Lane sites. This will allow patients to be seen in the most appropriate setting to address their needs and for Corfton Road patients to be catered for while building work is in progress.
The new building will increase the clinical space available for delivering services to patients and is designed to meet BREEAM 'Excellent' sustainability targets to ensure inclusivity and accessibility for all patients.
The architects say the building will be developed to be sensitive to the residential area as well as futureproofing for the emerging healthcare needs of the local community.
Consultation with patients and residents has already taken place in virtual engagement events.
On Tuesday, 5 October, Corfton Road Surgery and specialist healthcare property organisation OneMedical Group will run two online sessions for patients, residents, and those in the community to update and share details on the current progress with the redevelopment.
