The Glanrafon Medical Centre in Mold Opens to the Public
The Bradley’s Practice and Grosvenor Surgery both completed their relocation this week into their new 1110m2 Medical Centre located in the heart of Mold town centre. This follows the successful construction by local contractors RL Davies and the support and assistance throughout the development process from both practices and the Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board.
The building offers nine consulting rooms and three treatment rooms and the Health Board will be providing a podiatry service from a multi-function/treatment room. There is also a large meeting room with views over the surrounding countryside, and associated library which will be invaluable as the Bradley’s Practice is a training practice. The Bradley’s Practice has a fully fitted dispensary within the main waiting area. The building has been designed with built in expansion rooms to enable services to be developed in the future. In addition the building can easily be extended to provide longer term expansion when the demand arises.
Externally the building has crisp elevations comprising a mixture of materials; glazing, render, stone and zinc combining effectively to provide a modern yet sympathetic design to complement the adjacent Listed buildings. There are 35 car parking spaces together with a drop off layby adjacent to the entrance.
Internally the building benefits from an interior design based on the local setting of the town and the encapsulation of the hawthorn hedge within 3form glazing panels which form the entrance lobby to the building. The local primary school, (Ysgol Gymraeg Glanrafon), in conjunction with local artist Jan Gardner, has produced two spectacular montage pictures both on display in clinical corridors. The school children were also lucky enough to bury a Time Capsule for future generations to unearth. Further artwork has been provided by local photographer Llinos Lanini whose picture of the well known landmark called Moel Famau (a 550m hill surrounded by a country park to the south of Mold) is displayed across the wall of the first floor waiting area.
