The building also includes a smart waiting room and showers.

A new fitness studio is also set to open on the site later this year.

Dan Besau, said: “The health and wellness industry plays a crucial part in the lives of so many people.

"People are quite rightly prioritising their health much more these days and understand the importance of being fit and well both mentally and physically.

"Workplace stress, mental health issues, the pandemic and lifestyle related diseases mean that the demand for wellness solutions is very high.

"In addition to the testing, vaccination and chiropractic services, the fitness studio, which is already pre-let and under construction, will open its doors in October.

Leeds property company, Adair Paxton negotiated both the initial sale of the 2,904 sq ft building and is now dealing with the subsequent leases.

Its commercial management team will also be managing the property.

Simon Dalingwater, a director at Adair Paxton, said: “The GP practice gave its notice on the building back in 2020, and after a competitive marketing process, we were delighted to find a buyer who still wanted to provide valuable health-related services to local people.

“The pharmacy, that adjoins the larger building has been part of the site for almost 30 years and will remain open in its original location next to Adel Health following a renegotiation of the lease.

“I’m very proud to see the former surgery take on a new lease of life as a wellness hub and fitness studio and we’ve invested heavily in Adel Health to ensure that the local community can access the very best services on their doorstep.”

Simon added: “It’s a great location for a health and wellbeing hub, and of the five available rooms, we have already agreed terms for two occupiers to each take two rooms, which speaks

volumes about the popularity of the concept.”

YPC Health has leased two rooms, from which it will be providing a range of testing and vaccination services and an independent Chiropractic business will be re-locating to Adel Health. There is now just one room remaining to rent.

Adel Health is due to open later this month. For more details about the last remaining room at Adel Health contact Adair Paxton on 0113 2395770 or visit
