GPs and construction teams came together at
the beginning of June to mark the formal start
of the build to create a new medical centre in
Tonbridge town centre.

Doctors from Tonbridge Medical Group joined
developers Assura and Kent-based contractor Jenner
as the second phase of construction got under way.
The new building will create a surgery for Tonbridge
Medical Group, giving the practice team the
facilities to care for many more patients.
The new premises will be large enough for
the Pembury Road and Higham Lane teams to
come together in one modern, purpose-built facility.
It will be big enough to run minor surgery, house
a pharmacy and have the space to deliver services
such as a wellbeing clinic.
The building will incorporate technology such as
photovoltaic panels to help reduce energy use
for the building – designed to achieve BREEAM
‘excellent’ status.
