A new health centre, which will be the first in Cambridgeshire to offer extended opening hours, is set to open.

The new GP-led centre, which will be open every day of the week, including weekends and bank holidays, from 8am to 8pm, will open on Monday (9th November).

Patients can now register to use the new facility.

It will be open for patients to walk in or use as their permanent GP practice.

Chris Banks, chief executive of NHS Cambridgeshire, said: “This new health centre is good news for the people of St Neots and surrounding villages, giving greater access to good quality health services.

People further afield can also make use of the walk in clinic and receive advice and treatment 12 hours a day.”

The new centre does not replace existing GP services in the area, but will add to them by offering patients GP and nurse appointments when their own surgery is closed and a drop in facility throughout the week.

It will be run by private company Malling Health on behalf of NHS Cambridgeshire.

Extending access to services by increasing opening hours is one of a number of pledges NHS East of England signed up to last year.

Anyone will be able to use the new service while they are registered with their current GP.

Their own doctor will then usually be informed about any treatment given.
