We are pleased to announce the completion of our most recent project in Mountain Ash-Ty Calon Lan Medical Centre. This surgery is a purpose-built facility, home to Cynon Vale Medical Centre and Rhos House Surgery, who have merged to become Meddygfa Glan Cynon Surgery. There is a range of community services also delivered by District Nurses and Health Visitors, which support local patients.
Challenges of Covid-19
The project has been extremely challenging due to Covid-19, but Apollo has been flexible with the client throughout the construction phase of the project, with design changes incorporated in response to infection control Covid-19 measures which have been added to the design to create hot and cold zones for effective triaging and segregation of patients.
Benefits of the New Mountain Ash Medical Practice
The building will provide 22 clinical rooms, administration, and support spaces over ground and first floor. The building has been designed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating and will include sustainable building systems such as stack ventilation, photovoltaic cells that generate over 60% of the buildings electrical needs, LED lighting and Electric Vehicle Charging Points.
The existing buildings are old, run-down, have poor lighting, and are not sustainable and aren’t easily accessible for both patients and staff. This is a common problem for many other GP practices around the UK. The two surgeries were previously housed in the buildings below.

How Apollo Medical Can Help You
We develop purpose-built medical centres with the end-users at the forefront of our minds. We aim to provide a great working environment for the GP’s and an accessible Practice for the patients. Going to the doctors is never an enjoyable experience, but we want patients to feel as comfortable as possible in the health centres we develop.
