Cooper Green Pooks report the letting of a new commercial building at Anchorage Avenue, Shrewsbury Business Park, Shrewsbury SY2 6FG to Newmedica, an independent health provider which runs a number of eye health clinics and surgical centres across the UK.

Built to a distinctive design in a prominent position fronting the Wenlock Road entrance to the Park, the new facility will provide ophthalmic services including cataract operations and other eye health and surgical services to both NHS and private patients.

Rebecca Lythe, Managing Director of Newmedica, said: ‘’We are delighted to be opening this new facility in Shrewsbury so that we  can bring the shorter waiting times and efficient service we are known for to NHS and private patients across Shrewsbury and the wider Shropshire area.

“We want to support the local NHS to deliver cataract surgery and follow up care alongside general eye surgery and support with the management of chronic eye conditions and look forward to opening later this year.”

Charles Howell of Cooper Green Pooks, letting agent for the property, added on behalf of the owners “The new ophthalmic facility complements the varied and wide range of national and local concerns and disciplines based at Shrewsbury Business Park, enhancing the Park’s position as Shropshire’s premier business/office location.”
