Medical aid sees AHMM in good health

Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) has praised the determination of a local GP for helping it win planning permission for this £9 million healthcare centre in north London.

The success of the Kentish Town Integrated Care Centre, funded by the National Health Service's Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT), is partly down to Dr Roy MacGregor, who battled for 'outstanding architecture' throughout the planning process.

Architect Paul Monaghan, who believes the scheme will become a beacon for good healthcare architecture, said: 'This experience shows just how low design is on LIFT's agenda - we didn't stand a chance without MacGregor. He is a champion of good design and even brought 50 or 60 supporters, including playwright Alan Bennett, to the planning committee meeting.' Inspired by the block-stacking game Jenga, the state-of-the-art building for Camden Primary Care Trust will include private consulting rooms, a concealed garden and a community gym.

Work is expected to start on site in the spring next year.
