Apollo - specialists in the development of healthcare premises in the UK

"Our current premises are in an old converted house, which is falling apart and it's not big enough to deliver the services our patients need."

 

At the Best Practice Conference in October we found numerous GPs were finding themselves in the exact same position. They are currently renting or own premises that lack parking, have poor disabled access, insufficient rooms to manage the increase patient numbers and an inability to deliver new models of care under the 5 year forward view. However, trying to develop new premises or improve existing can be very time consuming alongside the normal day to day workload. This is where Apollo, a specialist primary healthcare developer and consultant, can take the stress away from the development. 

Heckmondwike Health Centre, West Yorkshire

The process of NHS and local authority approvals along with statutory and NHS compliance can be very complex and requires a specialist company to guide practices and CCG’s. Apollo’s team each have 15 years experience in the sector, so we are well placed to act as your guide. We have completed over 100 projects in the UK since 1996 and are currently working on over 20 schemes in England, Wales and Scotland. We offer a full development service along with consultancy services to assist in development or refurbishment / extensions of premises.

 

Funding schemes is always a challenge in the NHS, however, Apollo think creatively by looking at land off market, speaking to local authorities under the One Public Estate agenda or dealing with house developers and utilising Section 106 obligations under health. We are working on several Estates and Technology Transformation schemes at present where capital is being used to support new developments. We are leading the way in this process with our schemes in Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Yorkshire and Leicestershire.

 

Apollo will manage the development process and not only take away the stress but also remove the development risk. We will appoint the delivery team including architects, engineers and builders at our cost and write the business cases necessary to secure NHS revenue and / or capital funding.

 

Apollo offer a personal service with single point responsibility from start to finish and into management of completed premises if required. We work as a team with our GP and CCG partners to make sure the scheme is designed to suit the needs of a region. We have a keen attention to detail and introduce interior designers and artists into schemes to bring an extra dimension. We are focused on our customers which is demonstrated through our repeat work in regions throughout the UK. With offices in Ipswich, Cardiff, Glasgow, Shrewsbury and Leeds we offer a truly UK wide service.

 

Our track record can boast numerous awards including Best Primary Care Development for our Eastwood scheme in the recent Building Better Healthcare Awards. Eastwood also won the European Health Design award along with the RIAS award for design excellence.

 

So, if you are working from an out-dated premises and have run out of ideas, give Apollo a call and we can work with your practice to develop a plan for the future.
