Burnham Medical Centre plans brighter outlook for patients
Burnham & Berrow Medical Centre are to refurbish their patient consulting and treatment rooms at the Burnham site.
Built in the 1987 this is the first time the medical centre in Love Lane has had the opportunity to fully refurbish its clinical facilities.
Wall and ceiling décor is being improved with sink units, flooring and examination couches also being brought up-to-date. This will not only improve their appearance but also ensure all surfaces are easier to be cleaned and maintained in line with all current infection control standards.
There will be some temporary disruption to consulting rooms whilst the refurbishments taken place, but the Practice and its services are otherwise unaffected.
Dr Mike Wolfman, Senior Partner, said: “This refurbishment is necessary and I would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience it might cause. However, once completed we expect the clinical consulting rooms to offer a noticeable improvement of environment to both our patients and staff”.
Work on the refurbishment will start from 28 October 2018 and should be completed early in the New Year.
The medical centre’s refurbishment is being funded in the main by the Partners of the Practice via a bank loan with a Minor Improvement Grant from NHS England. funding the remainder. We would like to reassure our patients that no money allocated to GP and Staff provision has been used for this refurbishment.
