The building provides a community health hub for the new Buckshaw Village and care for up to 10,000 patients.

Buckshaw Village is a new residential and industrial development on the former 300 hectare site of the Royal Ordnance Factory off Dawson's Lane, Chorley. It is one of the largest urban development sites in the North West of England and is the largest Brownfield regeneration scheme in the whole of Europe. The village is two miles from Chorley and Leyland and around 10 miles from Preston city centre.

It is intended that the development of new purpose built primary care premises on the Buckshaw Village will address the growing problem of patient access in Chorley and South Ribble and will provide easy access to a full range of integrated health and social care services. The range of services includes primary medical services, community nursing, allied health professionals and dental services.

This project was completed to a BREEAM "Excellent" rating and includes several renewable energy solutions such as Photovoltaic Panels and Solar Thermal Domestic Hot Water.
