Primary Healthcare Modular Buildings

Primary Healthcare Modular Buildings

For the first time in a generation, Primary Healthcare is changing, thanks to highly valued people, supported with a new long-term package of funding, new ways of working and improved technology.

Primary Care will lead on improving the ‘whole person’ health of a local population, with a greater understanding than ever before of mental health, the benefits of social prescribing, personalised care, medicines management and how to age well.

Totally new types of care for patients are being offered, particularly for complex conditions and conditions like anxiety and stress, as the NHS moves from treating illness, to intervention that identifies and helps people as soon as they notice something isn’t quite right.

The NHS Long Term Plan is already giving people more timely access to more services close to where they live and by funding new Fit-for-the-Future infrastructure, and care delivered through more widely skilled teams so that people can more easily connect with the right person for their needs.

Primary care services are the ‘front-door’ of the NHS, offering an increased range of General Practitioner led specialist services and diagnostics. In the most ambitious plan in a generation, the NHS is seeking to transform Primary Care, offering patients with diverse needs a wider choice of personalised, digital-first health services.

Meeting these challenges requires looking at innovative new methods of providing infrastructure that offer resilience and efficiencies. Darwin Group are engaged as a trusted partner in the development of flexible and sustainable solutions as the leading healthcare design and build modern methods of construction (MMC) main contractor.

Our next-generation, volumetric primary healthcare modular buildings are fully aligned to a Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) approach. By employing early engagement through Feasibility and Design Commissions we can design primary healthcare modular buildings that can be manufactured off-site in our Shropshire based factory before being transported to site for watertight installation in a matter of weeks.

Once installed, we employ efficient, onsite ‘fit-out’ techniques to create a bespoke, best-of-breed building, enabling you to commission exactly what you require and expect, unrestricted by traditional modular build or the length of time of a conventional one. Our innovative, Fit-for-the-Future, building technologies are completely adaptable, allowing easy, cost-effective reconfiguration as the future health needs of our communities change.

Cavell Centres Primary Healthcare Modular Buildings

New community super primary healthcare centres known as Cavell Centres aim to bring health and social care services together in one building as a form of one-stop-healthcare-shop for patients. Encompassing the co-location of community services, outpatients, diagnostics and other NHS health services – in addition to third sector and local authority services such as social care and housing support.

Darwin Group can design and build a 2,000m2 – 10,000+m2 Cavell Centre Primary Healthcare Modular Building that includes General Practitioner, Pharmacy, Optometry and Diagnostic Services with on-site laboratories. Internal office space for third sector and local community services can be designed in at concept to offer a flexible approach to working, and with a minimum 60-year design life, the option of temporary or long-term occupancy for onwards efficiencies and future-proofing the needs of the community.

GP Walk-In Centre Primary Healthcare Modular Building

Providing primary healthcare to a population that is increasingly finding it harder to book an appointment has led to pressure on Secondary healthcare as the focus changes from prevention to treatment. To meet this challenge the NHS introduced GP Walk-In Centres in 1999 with a pilot scheme funded to provide 40 NHS Walk-In Centres in 30 towns and cities across England offering walk-in access, without the need for an appointment.

Modern Walk-In centres require the ability to offer a service that builds on the existing primary healthcare infrastructure. Creating dynamic centres that can grow organically with the population is a key challenge that is matched head-on by our volumetric next generation GP Walk-in Centre Primary Healthcare Buildings. In 2006, Darwin Group delivered the first Primary Care facility to have been designed and built to Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) in the West Midlands.

Community Diagnostic Hub Primary Healthcare Modular Building

The Richards Review (Diagnostics: Recovery and Renewal) recently recommended that the separation of acute and elective diagnostics should be separated where possible, and that community diagnostic hubs be established away from acute hospital sites. To match the NHS Long-Term Plan commitment to narrowing health inequalities the location of these Community Diagnostic Hubs needs to be sited at locations with adequate public transport links and car parking.

Often sited at NHS community hospitals, we can design and build a Community Diagnostic Hub Primary Healthcare Modular Building that offers a range of services that provide safety and efficient diagnosis and ongoing monitoring, including Imaging, Cardiorespiratory, Pathology, Endoscopy, Consulting and Reporting Rooms as a minimum.

Ophthalmology Primary Healthcare Modular Building

Research commissioned by RNIB estimates that the cost to the UK economy due to sight loss in the adult population is in excess of £28bn. This comprises of a direct healthcare cost of £3bn and indirect costs of £25bn associated with lost employment opportunities, the unpaid care burden on friends and relatives, and the reduced health and wellbeing caused by sight loss.

To combat this the creation and upgrading of regional ophthalmology centres allows early detection and continued monitoring to save the NHS in the long-term. Our Ophthalmology Primary Healthcare Modular Buildings can incorporate fully HBN and HTM compliant theatres alongside consulting and reporting rooms.
