Gloucestershire Echo - - YOUR MONEY -

CHEL­TENHAM based, Top 200 law firm BPE Solic­i­tors has ad­vised on the open­ing of a new health fa­cil­ity.

Cleeve­lands Med­i­cal Cen­tre was re­cently opened in Bishop’s Cleeve, Chel­tenham.

The new med­i­cal prac­tice, run by Bishop’s Cleeve Med­i­cal Cen­tre Lim­ited, has seen the merger of Seven Posts Surgery in Prest­bury and Grey­holme Surgery in Cleeve to cre­ate a new site ca­pa­ble of pro­vid­ing a wide range of ser­vices in­clud­ing state of the art con­sul­ta­tion and treat­ment rooms as well as a suite for mi­nor op­er­a­tions and an on­site phar­macy.

The com­bined med­i­cal cen­tre will ini­tially pro­vide health­care ser­vices to more than 10,300 pa­tients how­ever this is due to in­crease as a re­sult of fur­ther hous­ing planned for the area.

The new fa­cil­ity also has coun­selling and con­sult­ing rooms along with a 100m² unit avail­able for hire to health providers.

BPE’S com­mer­cial prop­erty team, led by Part­ner Jo Bew­ley, ad­vised Bishop’s Cleeve Med­i­cal Lim­ited through­out the de­vel­op­ment of the site in­clud­ing spe­cific mat­ters re­lat­ing to leases, fi­nance agree­ments and con­struc­tion mat­ters.

Jo said: “We are de­lighted to have ad­vised on the brand new Cleeve­lands Med­i­cal Cen­tre and to have helped make the project a re­al­ity.

“BPE’S health­care team has sig­nif­i­cant ex­pe­ri­ence in ad­vis­ing surg­eries, med­i­cal cen­tres and care providers, par­tic­u­larly in re­la­tion to prop­erty mat­ters.

“The team un­der­stand the par­tic­u­lar is­sues around GP part­ner­ships, merg­ers and own­er­ship as well as de­vel­op­ment, leases and con­tract mat­ter which are needed to bring this type of project over the line.”

Dr Diane Mar­son of Bish­ops Cleeve Med­i­cal Lim­ited said: “Build­ing work started at the new Cleeve­lands Med­i­cal Cen­tre over a year ago and we are de­lighted to now be open to pa­tients.

“The ex­pe­ri­ence that Jo and the team at BPE brought hav­ing worked on other sim­i­lar projects was in­valu­able in help­ing us to cre­ate this fan­tas­tic new med­i­cal prac­tice.”
