Minister and Boston MP to officially open new £3m healthcare hub in town


A new £3 million healthcare hub is to be officially opened in Boston this afternoon (March 27).

Dr Dan Poulter MP, parliamentary under secretary of state for health, and Mark Simmonds MP for Boston and Skegness, will perform the honours at Parkside Medical Centre, in Tawney Street, Boston..

The project to re-develop the existing medical centre and pharmacy began in March 2012 and involved demolishing the old pharmacy and a former garage on the site. It is a joint venture between Parkside Medical Centre and the Lincolnshire Co-op.

Encompassing a large GP surgery and a Lincolnshire Co-op pharmacy, the new hub has six new consultation rooms, bringing the total to 15.

There is also a new treatment room, two refurbished treatment rooms, plus a physiotherapy suite, baby changing facilities and office space.

The new pharmacy can now be accessed directly from the medical centre reception and is about double the size of the previous pharmacy, with more seating, two new consultation rooms and an extended dispensing area.
