Carterknowle Renovation Project

 Starting Monday 26th March, we have plans for a renovation project at Carterknowle practice.

Although there may be some minor disruption, the practice will be much improved for patients.

The building works should last approximately 6 months.


The renovation will include:

  • An upgrade to all patient waiting areas - including improved seating
  • Installation of a lift
  • Three new downstairs clinical rooms
  • Ramp outside access instead of stairs
  • Automatic front door at entrance

Keep track of the project below!

Day 20 - 20/04 - The upstairs waiting room wall has been knocked down, making it a lot more spacious.
