Improvements to Valley Medical Centre paves the way for new venture
Plans have been submitted to Sheffield City Council to deliver major improvements to the Valley Medical Centre in Stocksbridge.
The building on Johnson Street in Stocksbridge has been purchased by Dransfield Properties Ltd, the company which owns Fox Valley.
The company has now submitted plans to make a number of improvements to create more space for staff and patients at the centre working with Sheffield architects Dixon Dawson who designed Fox Valley.
Under the new plans the existing building will undergo an external facelift to improve the look of the centre. A new extension will also create an attractive new entrance area and lobby and the waiting room will be upgraded.
Further improvements are also planned to re-configure the internal areas making more efficient use of the Valley Medical Centre’s space. The planning application for the improvements to Valley Medical Centre has been submitted to Sheffield City Council and once approved the work will start later in the autumn.
Valley Physiotherapy Clinic have also just moved to the medical centre – taking the former Martyn Kemp Opticians unit on Johnson Street.
The practice has three new professional treatment rooms in its new premises which opened earlier this month.
Estates Director at Dransfield Properties, James Shepherd, said: “We are delighted to be bringing forward these improvements to the Valley Medical Centre building, this will improve the experience for both patients and staff and vastly improve the look of the building.
“We’d also like to welcome Angela Finkill and the team at the Valley Physiotherapy Clinic and wish them all the very best in their premises at Johnson Street.”
Angela Finkill, of Valley Physiotherapy, said: “21 years since my private Physiotherapy practice was established in the Valley Medical Centre, I am delighted to have moved into my new premises, giving myself and team of specialist Physiotherapists the opportunity to further develop the services we offer to the local area.”
