The New Coulsdon Medical Centre

As you may recall, it was proposed that the new Medical Centre was to be built adjacent to the CALAT site in Coulsdon. Unfortunately, the developer has decided to pause all NHS developments for an unspecified period while they review the financial viability of the schemes in the light of the recent financial turmoil. Funding is currently in place and the Health Authorities are exploring every avenue to make sure that they retain the funding and the medical centre is built for residents in the Coulsdon area.

Purley Hospital

Funding has been confirmed for additional diagnostics at Purley Hospital – see below for what the project will provide. This is fully funded – both equipment and staffing – for 3 years. We also show below the “wish list” which is not yet funded. An extension will be built at the rear of Purley Hospital as more space will be needed for the new equipment. We are pleased to hear that the site will be looked at as a whole rather than the new diagnostics all being in the extension.
