Kibworth Medical Centre
Out with the Old and In with the New
On Wednesday 19 July the brand new state-of-the-art Medical Centre opened its doors to patients for the first time. Located just a stones throw away from the old Kibworth Health Centre on Smeeton Road, the new £3million purpose-built facility has an airy new waiting area, 11 multi-purpose consulting and treatment rooms, a minor operations suite and a counselling room.
Planning permission for the new surgery was finally secured just prior to Christmas 2015 and this project has been made possible following an extensive business case and resulting in substantial investment from the NHS to improve primary care services for the area. Although it was a hard fought battle to obtain planning permission, actually the changes made have resulted in a better designed surgery for both patients and staff.
The new Kibworth Medical Centre also boasts a car park providing more than 60 car parking spaces for patients and staff in beautifully landscaped surroundings.
The bigger premises will allow the Medical Centre to deliver a high level of care and additional services locally for all registered patients.
