St George's Surgery, Blackburn, Lancashire

“We wish to thank you for turning our thoughts and plans into an exceptional reality”

Our consultative approach enabled us to listen and understand the exact needs of the GPs at St George's. We took on-board their wish for a building that was simple and accessible for their patients. We responded by creating a carefully designed centre, which operates around a central waiting area.

As part of our long-term management approach and ongoing reinvestment policy, we carried out a retrofit solar PV scheme. The doctors are now enjoying the benefits of noticeably reduced running costs.

“Working with United Healthcare Developments on this new scheme has been a pleasure throughout. We wish to thank you for turning our thoughts and plans into an exceptional reality”
