BPE advises on development of Cleevelands Medical Centre

Cheltenham based, Top 200 law firm BPE Solicitors has advised Bishops Cleeve Medical Centre Limited on the development of the recently opened Cleevelands Medical Centre in Bishops Cleeve, Cheltenham.

The new medical practice built in the heart of Bishops Cleeve has seen the merger of Seven Posts Surgery in Prestbury and Greyholme Surgery in Cleeve to create a new site capable of providing a wide range of services including state of the art consultation and treatment rooms as well as a suite for minor operations and an onsite pharmacy.  The combined medical centre will initially provide healthcare services to more than  10,300 patients, however this is due to increase as a result of further housing planned for the area.  The new facility also has counselling and consulting rooms along with a 100m² unit available for hire to health providers.

BPE’s Commercial Property team, led by Partner Jo Bewley, advised Bishops Cleeve Medical Limited throughout the development of the site including specific matters relating to leases, finance agreements and construction matters.

Jo commented, “We are delighted to have advised on the brand new Cleevelands Medical Centre and to have helped make the project a reality. BPE’s Healthcare team has significant experience in advising surgeries, medical centres and care providers, particularly in relation to property matters.  The team understand the particular issues around GP partnerships, mergers and ownership as well as development, leases and contract matter which are needed to bring this type of project over the line.”

Dr Diane Marson of Bishops Cleeve Medical Limited commented, “Building work started at the new Cleevelands Medical Centre over a year ago and we are delighted to now be open to patients. The experience that Jo and the team at BPE brought having worked on other similar projects was invaluable in helping us to create this fantastic new medical practice.”
