Why does St Clements Surgery need new premises?

The practice is based in a dated 1960s building on Tanner Street in Winchester, serving more than 17,500 local people and part of the Winchester City Primary Care Network. Its premises have reached the end of their useful life: they are far too small for the number of patients the practice cares for and aren’t fit to provide primary care services into the future. Waiting areas have no windows, the building doesn’t work well for patients with disabilities, rooms are cramped, and the site isn’t energy efficient. 


The practice has long needed better premises and has been working for almost two decades to find a new home. Together with Winchester City Council and NHS Hampshire and Isle of Wight ICB, the practice has developed a proposal for a new medical centre space on the Upper Brook Street car park, to create the facilities the practice team needs for the future of care in Winchester city centre.


You can view the plans below.

This site for the new building was selected in an options appraisal almost two decades ago as part of the city centre regeneration plans, but has never before been able to progress due to delays with the wider city centre work. A location to serve city centre patients has always been crucial: there are no other practices based nearby, so it’s vital that St Clements remains here. This means that site options were very limited.

The medical centre will be only metres from the current practice building, protecting crucial access to primary care in the heart of the city. The council has appointed primary care property specialist Assura to deliver the new centre.

What practice staff say:


“Our current building is being held together by ‘sticky plasters’, so a new building is very exciting & long overdue.”


“Many rooms are far too small. Some are ‘dark cupboards’; as a partner I feel very unhappy putting any of our staff in there to work, but we often have no choice.”


“Our current building is very old and run down, patients always comment and we have been promising a new building for years. A new building with a better layout, more energy efficient and greener would be amazing.”

Community Fund

The Assura Community Fund


Through its national community fund, Assura – the appointed developer for the scheme - offers small grants to health-improving charity projects in the communities around all new medical centres that it builds. It means that a local health project in Winchester can benefit from a grant, and this will be explored with local organisations as the proposed scheme moves ahead.
