Client: Primary Medical Property
Value: £2m
Contractor: Robert R Roberts

The Friary Community Hospital was one of the first PFI projects of its type in the UK and comprises the refurbishment and extension to a Grade II listed former boarding school with a history dating back to the 1600s.  When the client first acquired the property, the building had been derelict for some years before becoming a community hospital and GP surgery.

The reinvigorated building provides intermediate care which stresses a multi-disciplinary approach with an emphasis on assessment and rehabilitation.  The Friary consists of a ward with 18 beds and a range of therapy rooms and a Chapel of Rest, with a GP surgery used regularly by 8 practices.  A day unit has facilities for up to 10 patients at a time.
