An agreement between the Centre’s partners and the NHS South Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), means Waterside can extend its facilities, as well as look to the future and plan for additional growth with a new long-term lease of adjacent land.
Lodders provided business property lease advice, including negotiations with CCG to ensure the building works are carried out by the landlord and developer PHP, a specialist contractor to the NHS, while the surgery and its six GPs and clinicians remain open to its 13,200 registered patients.
The firm’s partner Alastair Frew, who heads up its specialist Business Property team that has worked with Waterside’s partners, explains: “The additional land and lease signals the realisation of Waterside Medical Centre’s short and potentially longer-term expansion plans that ensure the vital clinical support for its local community.
“It is, of course, essential the surgery remains open throughout the construction phase and so business continuity has been a key feature of discussions and the agreement with the local CCG, which is supporting the surgery with is plans.”
Tim Morris MA CMgr FCMI MIHM, Partner, Waterside Medical Centre, adds: “The new facilities create the ability for the Centre to host trainee GPs and nurses, to increase its range of services and further improve the high quality of our clinical services.
“Alastair has been incredibly supportive throughout the process and his experience and expertise have been invaluable.”
