We have begun works to Valley Medical Centre in Stocksbridge on a project to bring major improvements to the centre. The development will transform the exterior of the building and create a better environment for patients and staff.

The existing building will undergo external improvements and a new extension to create an attractive entrance area and lobby to allow more space for Stocksbridge Dental Practice, which has been rebranded as mydentist Stocksbridge.

Internally the works will deliver an additional three new clinical rooms at the Medical Centre along with a fully refurbished waiting and reception area. A temporary entrance will be installed this week for patients whilst the improvements are being made to the existing entrance area.

The work is being carried out in phases to ensure that the medical centre will remain open throughout the project – the start of the new development was marked with a special soil cutting ceremony and is expected to be completed at the end of September.

We joined Dr Mark Atkin, the longest serving doctor at the practice as he performed the soil cutting along with Valley Medical Centre and Dransfield Properties.

The Valley Medical Centre caters for 9,700 patients in the Stocksbridge and Deepcar area.

The building is owned by Dransfield Properties, the company which developed, manages and owns the award-winning Fox Valley development in Stocksbridge.

“It is great to see the work starting this week on a development which is going to bring significant improvements to the Medical Centre and make the environment much better for patients and staff. We are delighted to be working with Henry Boot Construction on this project who are working closely with the team at Valley Medical Centre and mydentist Stocksbridge to keep disruption to a minimum.”
