A DOCTORS surgery has been opened at Creech St Michael.
Staff, patients and developers marked the opening today (September 4) at the medical centre, which includes two treatment areas designed to accommodate disabled patients and a reception area on the ground floor.
There is also parking for patients and a pharmacy at the Hyde Lane site.
Jane Barrie OBE, chairman of NHS Somerset said: “I am delighted to be able to officially open the new Creech St Michael Medical Centre.
"Over the last three years Somerset Primary Care Trust has supported additional investment into the majority of Somerset’s GP premises, with some 53 of the county’s 76 surgeries being either refurbished, extended or rebuilt.
"Such developments are helping to ensure local family doctors are well placed to manage the growing demands upon the NHS and offer health care closer to home.”
