Hindley, Wigan, Lancashire
Your dogged determination during difficult negotiations proved essential to the success of the scheme. I am delighted, on behalf of the Doctors and the local community, to thank you for all your hard work.
Kath Fenney, Practice Manager, Pennygate Medical Centre, Hindley

This large practice with its substantial patient list risked becoming congested. To overcome this we created a separate prescription desk as well as a flexible main reception area and administration office.

The expansion space incorporated into this sizeable scheme has been highly beneficial, being put to excellent use as a fitness suite, enjoyed by the Hindley community.

In 2013 a 7.25kW solar panel scheme was retrofitted to the development.

UHD helped the practice secure NHS capital funding to fit out the expansion space in November 2020, providing the practice with an additional 500m² of clinical office space to accommodate the practice growth.
