New Health and Wellbeing Hub in Adel

Individual general practitioners can now work in the transformed former doctor’s surgery in Adel, where state of the art facilities and a £200,000 investment have created a health and wellbeing hub, Adel Health. A fitness studio will be added later in 2021.

Dan Besau is the investor who bought the premises and began the refurbishment straight away, resulting in a ground floor containing individual rooms available for GPs and holistic therapists to hire, a waiting room and showers.

Adair Paxton negotiated the initial sale of the 2,904 sq ft building and will deal with leases and manage the property. Simon Dalingwater, a director at Adair Paxton, said: “The GP practice gave its notice on the building back in 2020, and after a competitive marketing process, we were delighted to find a buyer who still wanted to provide valuable health-related services to local people. The pharmacy that adjoins the larger building has been part of the site for almost 30 years and will remain open in its original location next to Adel Health, following a renegotiation of the lease.”

There is parking for15 cars for the premises, which sits in landscaped grounds in a residential area. YPC Health has leased two rooms, from which it will be providing a range of testing and vaccination services and an independent Chiropractic business will be re-locating to Adel Health. There is now just one room remaining to rent.

Dan Besau: “The health and wellness industry plays a crucial part in the lives of so many people. People are quite rightly prioritising their health much more these days and understand the importance of being fit and well, both mentally and physically. Workplace stress, mental health issues, the pandemic and lifestyle related diseases mean that the demand for wellness solutions is very high. In addition to the testing, vaccination and chiropractic services, the fitness studio, which is already pre-let and under construction, will open its doors in October.

I’m very proud to see the former surgery take on a new lease of life as a wellness hub and fitness studio and we’ve invested heavily in Adel Health to ensure that the local community can access the very best services on their doorstep.”

Adel Health is due to open later this month. For more details about the last remaining room at Adel Health contact Adair Paxton on 0113 2395770 or visit
