A new health centre for Stansted Mountfitchet has progressed to the next phase with the completion of formalities between GP Partners at Stansted Surgery and developer Hilton Properties.

The paperwork was formalised on Tuesday and construction on the new Lower Street facility continues. The health centre will host GP services and have space for a pharmacy, dentist, community health services, shops and flats. Stansted Surgery, currently on St John’s Road, will move into the new premises, which is set to open in autumn 2016.

The health centre is being developed by Hilton Properties.

Dr Sue Humphrey, GP at Stansted Surgery, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled that now the lease is signed we can think about moving into the new facilities next year. This is an exciting time for Stansted residents as they can look forward to having a state of the art health centre on their doorstep.”

She added: Not only will the new facilities improve people’s experience of GP services but there are also plans for pharmacy and dentistry services to be available here too.”
