The Avenue Medical Centre, Blackley

24The Avenue Medical Centre was originally a small 174 sq m converted surgery in Blackley, Manchester, where Cohens Pharmacy had bought the adjoining plot and were operating out of a porta cabin.

The project has seen the medical centre double in size.  A two-storey extension was built which links the surgery to a branch of Cohens Chemist.  The extension houses 11 new consulting rooms, a new reception and pram storage area, waiting rooms, offices and archive facilities.

Our Healthcare team acted on behalf of the doct36 ors in negotiating with the Pharmacy for the ability to use some of their land so as to refurbish and extend the medical centre, and adjoin it to a new integral pharmacy.

Negotiations included the contribution of a substantial contribution from the pharmacy, continuing with the District Valuer and NHS England to establish a rent on the new premises, plus an improvement grant of £400,000.

The Pharmacy opened in 2017 and the new 488 sq m medical centre was fully completed in September 2018.
