Work has begun on the construction of a new 77-bed care home in Surrey, which will leased by award-winning care provider Hallmark Care Homes.
The new home, which will provide residential and dementia care, is being built at a cost of £8m across a one acre site by contractor Lawrence Baker and will be the care group’s first lease deal.
