The West Hull Health Hub – hailed as a beacon of future primary care services – has been recognised at the recent Building Better Healthcare Awards.
Approaching its one year anniversary, the £8million state-of-the-art health hub has seen thousands of Modality Partnership (Hull) patients pass through its doors since it opened in November 2021. It has integrated crucial services under one roof within the community with the aim of limiting the need for hospital admission or care.
It’s the first new primary care health centre in the country to be delivered under a new third-party developer model by Citycare and investor and public sector partner, Community Health Partnerships. The project was completed on behalf of the NHS in conjunction with NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group.
Now, the West Hull Health Hub is being celebrated as the ‘Clinician’s Choice’ after it was shortlisted for the Best Healthcare Development category in this years awards.
The judges described the building as “wonderful”, adding “integrated community care hubs are the way forward for the NHS, and this development is setting a precedent for how these should look.”
This is the second award the West Hull Health Hub has taken home this year, having won Public-Private Collaboration of the Year at the Insider Media Yorkshire Property Industry Awards in September.
