About BHI

The History

BHI is a Limited Company formed by Bromsgrove Doctors to provide a state of the art Medical Centre for our patients in the centre of Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

St Johns Surgery and Churchfields Surgery started early discussions in 2003/2004 about the possibility of finding a site that would accommodate both surgeries in one building. It wasn’t until the end of 2005 that a two acre site was identified, which at the time was land surplus to the needs of the newly built Parkside School. In January 2006, the proposed health centre project finally received outline support of both the District and County Councils together with that of the Worcestershire Primary Care Trust who agreed to support the provision of General Medical Services from a new building based on the surgeries’ robust business plan, which demonstrated service need and how it was to be delivered but also significantly demonstrated it was a value for money building project.

As the project progressed a local dentist; physiotherapist; nursery; optician and pharmacy were approached as potential tenants. Also as both the surgeries are recognised teaching practices, Birmingham Medical School agreed to rent rooms for student teaching.
It soon became obvious that the project was complex with many hurdles to jump and not without risk of collapse, exposing the doctors to considerable financial liability.  The doctors from the beginning wanted to keep the development, its future running and use of the building firmly under their control which led to the formation of Bromsgrove Healthcare Innovations (BHI) Ltd in July 2007.

BHI Ltd raised the bank finance of £9million for the project and the completed project has resulted in an impressive landmark building now known as BHI Parkside.

BHI Parkside finally opened its doors in May 2011 to provide state of the art facilities for patients and users and is designed to provide one of the best multi-use primary care medical centres in the country.  The building has attracted both medical and non medical people who either want to use the conference facilities or work in the building and BHI Parkside continues to provide a valuable asset to the Bromsgrove Community, providing comprehensive services for its users.
