Highbridge Medical Centre to officially open its new extension today

Patients, carers and staff from Highbridge Medical Centre will be celebrating the completion of a major building project today (Tuesday, July 17th) with the official opening of a brand new extension.

As part of the celebrations, the centre is holding an 'open house' afternoon and is encouraging registered patients to come along from 2pm to take a look at the new facilities.

Members of NHS Somerset’s Health Promotion Team will also be present, offering advice on everything from healthy diet and lifestyle to health checks and diabetic eye screening, cancer awareness and sexual health.

Practice Manager Joanne Farnworth told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We hope that as many patients as possible will come along and view the new surgery extension."

"Doctors, staff and our public health colleagues will be on hand to answer their questions and give advice about improving diets, health and lifestyle."

"The new extension to the health centre means we are now able to provide many more services to our patients."

"We have added two treatment rooms and the overall extra space means we can be more versatility if we need to adapt for future service needs."

The surgery has recently launched a Patient Participation Group (PPG) who are already helping the surgery gather the patient views and valuable feedback on services from its 14,000 registered patients. Members of the PPG will be holding a pig roast and prize raffle at the event.
