United Healthcare Developments is an independent and highly-experienced third-party developer specialising in the delivery of outstanding and innovative medical centres. Our specialist experience and expertise means that we fully understand the needs of the primary care sector.

Built to the highest quality standards, our state-of-the-art buildings provide comfortable, secure and spacious environments for healthcare providers, staff and patients. We create sustainable and energy-efficient facilities that are cost effective to run and deliver maximum value for money. 

Our focus on innovation, the environment and sustainability has always been integral to our approach since UHD was formed in 2000. With the current challenges of climate change and the pressure to reduce carbon emissions, it is our aim to create net-carbon zero buildings and to achieve BREEAM Outstanding on every project.


Vision and values

Our vision is to be the medical centre developer of choice.

From the outset it has always been and still remains the UHD approach to enter into long-term partnering relationships with each and every client, whether a GP practice or practices, CCGs or any other healthcare providers. Our involvement is long-term and ongoing, we have 100% retention of all of our developments.

We do not seek external investors with all finance being provided directly through UHD. This long-term investment and total commitment means we will always have a shared interest in each of our developments and we are committed to delivering the optimum outcome on every project in terms of build quality, sustainability, energy efficiency, comfort and safety for all healthcare providers, patients and visitors. We will manage the property throughout the whole tenancy providing an expert, hands-on service and taking all the pressures of managing and maintaining a building away from the tenants.

It is now our pledge to deliver net-carbon zero buildings and to acheive BREEAM Oustanding on every project. 

UHD provides a complete turnkey development service and we are proud to be known for providing a reliable, trustworthy and personable service.

A family-run business with 100% property retention

United Healthcare Developments Ltd was formed by David and Kate Brown in 2000. Since then, UHD has firmly established itself in the industry and has gained a well-earned reputation as a trustworthy and high-quality medical centre developer, delivering outstanding buildings that meet all current and future needs of customers with an emphasis on design innovation and sustainability.   

Being a small family-run business, the personable service the team consistently delivers is a key part of the UHD ethos. Every client recieves the highlest level of service and every development is an investment and a long-term relationship with healthcare clients. With all funding directly through UHD and with no external investors, this means 100% commitment from UHD.  

At UHD we pride ourselves on developing long-term partnerships built on trust and expertise. We have a proven track record and have retained all the medical centres we have built and to lower operational costs, we continually upgrade and re-invest into our buildings. 

We are immensely proud of our healthcare development portfolio.

Work with us and be involved every step of the way

When you work with us you do actually work with us, this is the team and our inclusive approach allows you as the client to be more involved throughout the whole of the development process.

By genuinely listening to customers and working in collaboration, we have built an enviable track record for delivering outstanding medical centre developments and consistent customer satisfaction.

Each development is unique and tailored to the individual requirements of GPs, staff and patients. Our building management services are customised to meet the specific needs of each practice, ensuring schemes always perform to the highest level and efficiency.

UHD is a long-term investor and partner with a proven track record and has retained ownership of all of its medical centre developments.

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.
Kaye Scattergood, Clinic Coordinator Springfields Health and Wellbeing Centre, Rugeley
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
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
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
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
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
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 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
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
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
This team approach, initiated by United Healthcare Developments, was the fundamental to the success of our scheme.
