Forest Road Primary Care Centre
The Forest Road Primary Care Centre in Enfield opened on 13th March 2006, ahead of schedule and fully operational. The building was one of the first of a new breed of Primary Care Centres, which provides integrated health facilities for its local residents.
Patients welcomed the wide range of services and the design and style of this large new facility. The community are able to get diagnostic tests and treatments, previously only available at the local hospital, on their doorstep. Through partnership working with the former Enfield Primary Care Trust, North London Estate Partnerships (NLEP) were able to realise the vision of providing purpose built, flexible space to deliver a range of services to the locality. NLEP also oversee the facilities management (FM) and life cycle works for this building which is delivered by Integral FM on a day-to-day basis.
The completed scheme incorporates a mixed tenure residential development alongside the Primary Care Centre. The master plan features a 43 bed Extra Care Housing scheme, which provides services to older people in the local community. In addition, new homes for key workers have been provided alongside housing for sale.
By understanding the commercial and legal requirements of all parties, NLEP were able to make suggestions whilst offering tangible benefits. NLEP achieved the optimum land value for all parties and maximised the value whilst minimising the risks for the former Enfield Primary Care Trust. At Forest Road Primary Care Centre, NLEP have successfully demonstrated how, through working closely with other stakeholders, best value is delivered utilising commercial opportunities.
A number of key benefits have been achieved including:
The 3,920m² building includes 4 GP Surgeries, Minor Surgery Suite, Dentist, Pharmacy and other primary care services, as well as facilities available for the local community groups.
Enfield CCG commissions the services delivered from Forest Road Primary Care Centre. All enquiries in this regard should be delivered to Enfield CCG. CHP Property Team manage the building on a day-to-day basis and all enquiries in this regard should be directed to CHP.
