Room with a view Could this be the UK's most stunning GP surgery site?

Perched overlooking the Menai Strait in North Wales, in the village of Y Felinheli, this is a primary care centre with an outlook like no other.

Y Felinheli

Opened in May 2013, the building created the space for a local GP surgery to move from cramped premises into a site made for modern healthcare. State-of-the-art treatment and consulting rooms, minor surgery suites, a dispensary and specialist training and research facilities sit next to accommodation for district nurses and health visitors.

But it's in the way this building works within its stunning environment which makes it truly special. Natural light and connection with the world outside are themes used in all great healthcare building designs. In this beautiful location, the landscape around the building is integral to creating a calming place for patients.

Rainwater harvesting and ground source heating are among the features to give the building one of the highest possible energy efficiency ratings.

And with patients themselves calling for more use of outside space in future medical centre design, Y Felinheli Primary Care Centre is a place to inspire.
