The new Cripps Health Centre on University Park is now complete and has opened to patients.
The new health centre has been built on Cripps Hill, near to the north entrance of University Park. Open to staff and students at the University of Nottingham and their families, it replaces the previously-used health centre on the other side of the hill.
All active practices from the previous health centre have now relocated into the new facility. Registered patients’ details will be transferred to the new practice so they do not need to re-register.
The new Cripps Health Centre is the biggest largest single practice health centre in the country and provides an opportunity to offer medical and health facilities to an increased number of patients.
As a result of the new facility’s increased space and flexibility, the University of Nottingham has increased its team with an additional GP Partner, two GPs, a Health Care Assistant, a Nurse Practitioner and two new Administrators. This has enabled increased appointment availability and a wider range of services.
Designed to offer a holistic approach to primary health and dental care, the centre’s facilities include:
Daniel Hammersley, Chief Operating Officer and University of Nottingham and University of Lincoln Health Services, said: “This amazing new facility will allow us to continue to grow and develop our broad range of services over the coming years, ensuring we continue to offer an outstanding service to the University Community.”
The fully philanthropically-funded centre has been constructed following a £9 million donation from the Cripps Foundation — the largest single gift donation ever to be given to the University by a private foundation.
