Bespoke services tailored to individual needs

Listening to individual customer needs and acting upon them is a key part of how we structure our services and how we deliver the best outcome and ongoing support for every project. UHD builds genuine partnerships with GPs, CCGs and the NHS to deliver innovative, cost-effective and sustainable medical centres designed to meet all current and future requirements. 

We are a long-term investor and have retained and manage all the properties we have built, we have an ongoing, shared interest in each of our developments.

Development service

The building of high-quality, sustainable medical centres is at the heart of our business. We involve our clients every step of the way and importantly, with UHD taking on and managing all the complexities of the development process. 

Our approach is consultative, not prescriptive. We look at each and every development as a fresh opportunity to provide the optimum, bespoke solution and to deliver genuine value for money.

  • We manage all our projects seamlessly from the outset
  • Briefing, consultation and liaison throughout
  • Site finding, acquisition and planning
  • Cutting-edge, intelligent design
  • Solutions-driven, carbon-neutral buildings
  • Sustainability and energy efficiency
  • Fully-managed construction process
  • We work to BREEAM Outstanding standards

Building management services

Our bespoke building management services are implemented from day one of occupation. UHD's specialist and friendly team is ready to deal with any issues quickly and efficiently. Every UHD project is unique and we tailor our building management services to meet the specific and individual needs of healthcare providers, staff and patients.

We provide a comprehensive programme of routine, planned and preventative maintenance, which means that GPs and practice managers have more time to dedicate to patient care and managing the business.

  • Internal and external property maintenance and management
  • Personal helpline
  • Practical advice
  • Regular one-to-one inspections and building performance reviews
  • Ongoing investment to ensure optimum cost-efficiency and compliance
  • Health and Safety documentation
  • Servicing and maintenance of equipment such as lifts, fire alarms, security systems etc
  • Staff training for equipment, plant and other on site systems
  • Identifying cost-effective contracts

Direct funding with no external investors

UHD is one of the last remaining independently run medical centre developers that has not been institutionalised into a big impersonal corporate conglomerate. We are a small, dedicated family-run business providing a unique, personal and bespoke experience.

UHD is a financially strong company and uses a traditional bank funding route with no venture capital and no external shareholders. We are collaborative not dictatorial, we will deliver what you want in the most sustainable way possible and we will manage the property throughout the tenancy.

UHD has an enviable track record for funding outstanding healthcare developments and is able to offer flexible, tailored solutions on a scheme by scheme basis.

  • Unlimited access to development funds
  • Joint-venture options
  • Shared ownership
  • Sale and leaseback
  • Single GP schemes

Continual improvement policy

Many of our developments have already put the future built-in expansion space to good use and UHD has helped four seperate practices within our developments to secure NHS capital funding to fit out the expansion space to accommodate increasing patient demand for additional clinical space.

In 2013, UHD retrofiited solar panel schemes to the majority of developments without to reduce the carbon footprint of the development and to reduce ongoing energy costs for the occupiers.

 

This team approach, initiated by United Healthcare Developments, was the fundamental to the success of our scheme.
Annita Langley, Practice Manager, Kingswood Surgery, Harrogate
We wanted a building to see us through the next twenty years and we have just that. We have a very attractive but entirely practical building, fit for our purpose and with low running costs built into the design. Environmental issues have been considered all along and we are particularly delighted with its geothermal heat exchange system. It is much more effective and practical than we ever thought possible. Can’t praise United Healthcare Developments highly enough.
Dr C D Baker, Longtown Medical Centre
The enthusiastic drive and accessibility of UHD’s managing director together with his efficient professional team have enabled the project to progress successfully whilst keeping the project board fully informed and consulted at all stages.
Dr Graham Davenport, Wrenbury Medical Centre
The high standard of construction, internal design and attention to detail are evident throughout the building. The managers and doctors were included at every stage of the design process, which meant that we finished up with the building we wanted. I would definitely recommend United Healthcare Developments to any practice considering new premises.
Paul Cunningham, Practice Manager, Barley Clough Medical Centre, Glodwick
It was important that we chose a developer that would listen to us and deliver what we wanted and not what they thought we needed. UHD did exactly this. They listened to what we said and the building reflects this throughout. It is exactly how we imagined it would be and delivers everything that we hoped it would deliver. Once the design of the building was agreed, we continued to be involved throughout and received vital support from UHD at every stage. Practices only go through this process once and therefore it is important that you make the right decision from the outset. Choosing UHD to provide us with our fabulous new building was definitely the right decision. It has ticked every box for us and has given us a building that will enable us to develop new services and change the ways in which we work, in what is now a competitive market.
Alison Wallace, Practice Manager, Lees Medical Practice
The practice is delighted with both the high standard of the development and the increased range of services now available to our patients.
Mrs Trisha Walker - Practice Manager, Meltham Village Surgery, Meltham
From concept through to completion your team has been thoroughly helpful and completely professional. We now have a state-of-the-art building from which we, and a host of other professionals, can deliver high quality medical services to the local community. Our patients are often voluble in their praises of the centre and I would like to thank you and all your team on their behalf.
Dr John Poyser, Middlewood Medical Centre and Polyclinic, Sheffield
It was not an easy task to build a fantastic state-of-the-art building on land still being occupied and used on a daily basis, but United Healthcare Developments managed to do just that. From beginning to end the whole team have been so professional, very helpful and a pleasure to work alongside. Norton Canes community has never had a facility like this and all the positive comments are a pleasure to hear. Thank you UHD for giving us all something to be proud of.
Angie Webb, Clinic Co-ordinator, Norton Canes Medical Centre, Cannock, Staffordshire
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
Working with United Healthcare Developments on this new scheme has been a pleasure throughout. Thank you for turning our thoughts and plans into an exceptional reality.
Margaret Baines, Practice Manager, St. George's Surgery, Blackburn
Delivering a modern, attractive, environmentally friendly building to suit the needs of the local community is exactly what United Healthcare Developments have succeeded in doing. Both staff and patients alike have been overwhelmed by the practical and effective facilities available.

There are plenty of car parking spaces, a must for a health centre of this size, along with bike racks and easy pedestrian access. My experience of United Healthcare Developments has been very positive and I would like to thank them for their continuing support and aftercare service.
