South Liverpool Treatment Centre replaced the much smaller Sir Alfred Jones memorial hospital which stood on the site previously. The building opened in April 2011 and houses two GP practices, a walk in and diagnostics suite, community dentistry, physiotherapy and a wide range of outpatient’s services including audiology and ophthalmology.
It was procured via the NHS LIFT framework as part of providing new healthcare facilities throughout Liverpool and is run by Liverpool and Sefton Health Partnership (LSHP) LIFTCo, who are a member of The LIFT Council.
This project has been awarded an ACE Excellence in Engineering 2011 Commendation following its completion in March 2011.
Sited on an elevated plot in Garston, the new health centre replaced a much-loved Edwardian Hospital. Strong geometric forms clad in stainless steel combine with a dramatic, welcoming entrance carved into the sandstone creating a new landmark. A café and Pharmacy animate the street frontage at lower ground level. Fragments of the demolished hospital offer references to the history of the site.
