“We have excellent staff and that made all the difference,” stated Sarah Morris, practice manager of North Cardiff Medical Centre. It was a difference that was to really count the Thursday night that Sarah and her colleagues heard that their two-storey surgery had been maliciously destroyed by fire.
It was obvious that the practice couldn’t continue for very long with the emergency arrangements that patients and staff were valiantly coping with after the fire. The practice had to find a more permanent home while the damaged building was demolished and a new building was designed and built.
“We received tenders from five accommodation hire companies,” said Sarah, “but only Wernick Hire really understood the urgency of the situation and that an early completion date was critical. They reacted rapidly and within a couple of days of the fire we were inspecting some temporary accommodation at their depot in Briton Ferry.”
Within four weeks of a contract being signed an air-conditioned modular building had been delivered, complete with reception area, waiting room, six doctors’ consultation rooms, two treatment rooms a kitchen and toilets.
