Colchester Primary Care Centre planning application granted

As people live longer, we need innovative approaches to health, care and support systems that meet our needs more effectively.

Colchester Primary Care Centre

Following the announced closure of the Essex County Hospital in 2017, Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust asked us to work in partnership with them to help move some of the clinical services currently provided at Essex County Hospital, including specialist outpatient eye, ENT and dental services, and support the redeveloped of Colchester Primary Care Centre into a modern, purpose-designed space.

In order to ensure that all patients have access to these services, additional lifts and a new stairwell are required within the PCC. Building is expected to commence early in 2017 and completed by the autumn 2017.
