The two Practices have now met, through Lewes District Council (LDC) the new architects (ADP) on a few occasions and we have now also met the developers, Kier. We are all continuing to explore options re the new premises, taking into account the huge amount of feedback received at the public consultation events in January and subsequently.

Dr Carolyn Turner (Old School Surgery) and Phil Abbott (Seaford Medical Practice) visited a health hub in Kentish Town, London, this week to get some ideas of what might work well. The visit was very helpful.

The two Practices are seeking some high level thoughts and ideas from their Patient Participation Groups regarding the layout and features for the new Health Hub and will feed these into the early discussions with the architects and developers.

Our latest understanding on timescales is for a further LDC public consultation event in early autumn and LDC looking to go for planning permission later in autumn. The public consultation event will include feedback from transport and traffic flow studies, the proposed building design and layout and will include a number of changes from the initial consultation driven by the public feedback received. The process (including timescales) is being led by LDC.
