The current sites of Granton Medical Centre and BG Health (Griffins Brook Medical Centre and Bunbury Road Surgery) are either not fit for purpose or do not meet the current standards expected for a GP surgery, and moving to a single, purpose-built site will allow the practices to offer their patients the best possible healthcare, with additional space available for current and future services.
The approximate walking distances from the existing surgeries to the new site are:
- Granton Medical Centre – 1.4 miles·
- Griffins Brook Medical Centre – 0.3 miles·
- Bunbury Road Surgery – 0.9 miles.
We are committed to ensuring that patients have access to high-quality, local primary care services and the current sites are either not fit for purpose or do not generally meet the current standards we would expect for a GP surgery.
By moving we would be able to offer our patients modern facilities in a “neighbourhood hub”, allowing integration with other local primary care services such as mental health counsellors, district nurses, physiotherapists, health trainers and Back to Work support workers, as well as additional car parking.
