The revised planning application  for the Sunningdale Health Hub that will bring together Magnolia House Surgery and Kings Corner Surgery on a single site and within a new, purpose-built building, will be considered by RBWM on Tuesday March 2nd 2022. Patients, carers and staff will all benefit from modern healthcare facilities that meet current standards and provide a significantly enhanced environment.   You can view the application on Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead planning portal website by searching for the application number 20/00969/FULL

There was an initial planning application for a Health Hub on the same site in 2020. However, a review of the NHS Long Term Plan as well as the impact of COVID-19, concluded that the requirements should be re-assessed and the space reconfigured to take account of changes in the way that GP practices and other health services now operate, including dedicated space for GPs and other professionals to conduct virtual appointments. The opportunity was also taken to appoint new architects and take a fresh approach to the design of the building, resulting in new and exciting plans.

The Sunningdale Health Hub will help deliver the strategic objectives of the wider Ascot Plan, which is to modernise primary and community care for local residents over the coming years and continue to improve on the health outcomes of local people.

The Hub will provide GP services and a range of community specialist services, including physiotherapy, minor procedures, mental health care, specialist nursing clinics and maternity care, as well as space for out of hours community and voluntary groups through the provision of a group room.

CARE QUALITY COMMISSION RATES THAMES HOSPICE AS ‘OUTSTANDING’ Charity is one of just a handful of hospices to have been awarded highest possible accolade
Staff and volunteers at Thames Hospice have much to celebrate after receiving an ‘outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) – the independent regulator of health and social care services in England – following a recent inspection at the charity’s state-of-the-art facility by Bray Lake.
Under the new CQC inspection regime, hospices are subjected to the same level of scrutiny as hospitals, making this ‘outstanding’ rating incredibly special. The CQC found that Thames Hospice is outstanding in responding to people’s needs, treating families with dignity, kindness and respect and being well-led.
Local residents should be proud and feel very reassured that their hospice is now rated as one of the best in the country. In the last month alone, of 548 health and care establishments that were inspected, only seven were rated outstanding.
