Following developments for a new combined Medical Practice at Holy Trinity Church in Central Hove, Mike Weatherley, Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, who has pushed local NHS officials to resolve stumbling blocks, has met with stakeholders as final details are ironed out.
The new surgery, which will be home to both the Sackville Medical Centre and Central Hove Surgery, is proposed for the empty Holy Trinity Church on Blatchington Road. The new combined practice will offer patients excellent new facilities in the heart of Hove.
Holy Trinity Church was completed in 1861 and has received Grade II listed status in 1992. The church finally closed in 2007 and faced an uncertain future until the new medical centre was proposed.
Commenting, Mike said: “I’m pleased that progress is being made on securing the Holy Trinity site. It has been a long struggle to get this far and so I hope that the necessary arrangements will be made to secure the site once and for all. I know that staff from both the Sackville Medical Centre and Central Hove Surgery have been working hard to make sure that patients get new up-to-date facilities that they deserve.”
