Sinclair Montrose creates railway surgeries for commuters too busy to visit a doctor
Tuesday 12 August 1997
Thanks to Sinclair Montrose, the AIM-listed healthcare group, commuters with no time to visit a local doctor can nip into Medicentre surgeries at Victoria and Euston stations for a check-up before leaping on to their trains.
Sinclair Montrose, which yesterday announced a pounds 6.6m private fundraising, said it planned to roll out the Medicentre concept to 24 surgeries by the end of next year, including centres at Charing Cross and Waterloo railway stations. This year the group intends to open four centres, including surgeries in a Sainsbury in Sheffield and in the Metrocentre shopping centre in Gateshead.
The group will also open a second surgery at Victoria station. Kate Bleasdale, chief executive (left), said the Medicentre concept, where patients pay an average of pounds 36 for a 15-minute consultation and up to pounds 180 for a medical, had proved popular.
