We began preparing the site in early November 2016, after securing the contract to build the new healthcare facilities.

Heanor community representatives, including local councillors, were invited to attend the turf-cutting ceremony, which took place on 1st December 2016.

Andy Sulin, Managing Director of A&S Enterprises, said: ‘We have a wealth of experience in healthcare projects including Ilkeston Medical Centre and Ilkeston Community Hospital’

The total cost of the project is £3.5m, incorporating not just the building costs, but all of the associated costs of fitting out and preparing the new building ready for patient care.

The contract  period is 12 months with the majority of the workforce being Derby based, demonstrating our commitment to use local personnel whenever possible.
