East Midlands Ambulance Service sold the base and surrounding land for over £1 million in 2019.

Ambulance crews and staff moved to work alongside police officers at Market Harborough police station on Fairfield Road.

The new care home is expected to create 60 jobs.

It’s being built by Frontier Estates, working in partnership with Care UK.

Luke Harris, construction director for Frontier, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Care UK again on this 76-bedroom luxury care home.

“This is another scheme we’re delivering for Care UK.

“It signifies our commitment in forging strong partnerships with key care operators, delivering bespoke solutions for them in desirable locations.”
