Plans for a £1.2m medical centre in Yarmouth with space for four GPs will be unveiled at a public meeting later this month.

It will take place on Wednesday next week, from 5pm to 7pm, at Cobholm and Lichfield Health and Resource Centre, the site of the new development.

Yarmouth and Waveney Primary Care Trust is working with Haven Health Properties, a specialist in primary health care, to relocate staff and patients from Nelson Medical Centre - housed in a temporary building in Churchill Road - to a new facility.

It will be a single-storey extension to the resource centre in Pasteur Road, Cobholm, which opened three years ago and provides a range of family health services.

A group is being set up for patients of the existing and new medical centre so they can work in partnership with staff to improve services. It will meet for the first time in the Churchill Road centre on February 7, at 7pm.
