William Jones, chief operating officer for Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are delighted to be able to share these exciting plans with local residents so they can see for the first time what their new health hub could look like.

"We have worked closely with the Peak District National Park Authority to ensure our designs are sympathetic to the heritage of the area while also providing a building which is suitable to meet the needs of 21st century community-based healthcare.

“We’re now ready to share the plans publicly and to provide an opportunity for people to ask questions and give us feedback, before we decide to submit the plans to seek planning consent.

"This is a big milestone in bringing this project to life and I am immensely grateful to everyone who has worked so hard on this and to Bakewell residents for their patience while we worked through the details.”
