Student Health Centre, University of Sheffield

This Yorkshire RIBA award winning primary care health centre was designed to meet the needs of 20,000 students. Students are benefiting from an award-winning health centre within the city centre campus.

The building accommodates 12 GPs, provides additional facilities for nursing and community health staff, a minor operating theatre, patient waiting area, administrative areas and an independent pharmacy.

Designed over two storeys, the centre is a visually-striking building inside and out. Two blocks of accommodation sit either side of a double height waiting area. One block contains the consulting rooms with the other housing administration and staff facilities.

The interior is very bright and cheery, with high-quality interior detailing and roof lights allowing daylight deep into the building heart. As a result of the sloping site it has been possible to slide the pharmacy under the main building incorporating it into the retail streetscape.
