Morgan Ashurst scoops ninth NHS LIFT scheme in Doncaster

Morgan Sindall’s construction business Morgan Ashurst has been awarded a £12 million NHS LIFT contract to build two pioneering primary health centres in Doncaster.

The firm will build The Town Hub primary care centre and Conisbrough Primary Care Centre for Doncaster Community Solutions, a public private partnership between Community Solutions for Primary Care, NHS Doncaster, Doncaster Metropolitan Council and Community Health Partnerships.

At The Town Hub in Sepulchre Gate West, central Doncaster, Morgan Ashurst will build a four-storey centre which will accommodate a GP practice, dentistry facilities, a pharmacy and a drop-in centre. It will also include community facilities for residents of Hexthorpe and Balby, as well as people working in the town centre.

Morgan Ashurst will also build Conisbrough Primary Care Centre, a two-storey building in Gardens Lane, Conisbrough which accommodates two GP practices, a district nurse, a minor operations unit, ambulance services, group work rooms and a pharmacy. Energy-saving features include natural lighting and ventilation.

Both schemes, which have been awarded under a five-year framework agreement, are due to be completed in Autumn 2011.
