Building work at Beech Grove and Move to Old Hungate Hospital Building
Dear Patients and Sherburn residents,
You may already be aware the practice has been planning a refurbishment of the Sherburn Group Practice premises at Beech Grove for many years and we are grateful to have the support of Sherburn Parish Council, Selby District Council and the NHS in this project.
We are excited to let you know that we now have the go ahead to begin this work!
Therefore, on 3rd October the builders, C & J Marshall, will begin by making temporary alterations to the Old Hungate Hospital Building, which is located in the centre of the village at the junction of Kirkgate and Finkle Hill, to enable the practice to vacate our premises on Beech Grove and move into Old Hungate until the work at Beech Grove is completed.
The practice will move out of Beech Grove on the afternoon of Friday 28th October and commence working from Old Hungate on the afternoon of Monday 31st October.
The practice will be closed from 12 noon on 28/10/22 – 1pm on 31/10/22 to enable this move to happen.
Building work at Beech Grove will then commence on Monday 31/10/22 and we anticipate it will take approximately 12 months to complete.
Naturally this will mean some changes to how we operate on a daily basis, but rest assured we will do everything we can to minimise the impact on our patients. We will also be working closely with our Construction Team to ensure that they limit the noise and inconvenience to our residential neighbours, as much as possible.
We are looking forward to the prospect of having a new surgery which is modern and large enough to accommodate the growing population within Sherburn in Elmet and surrounding areas.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation,
From Drs Osman, Patel, White, Murphy & Anderson
