VIDEO: Minister officially opens Boston’s new £3m healthcare hub

Boston’s new £3 million ‘healthcare hub’ at Parkside Medical Centre was officially opened by junior health minister Dr Dan Poulter.

The centre, in Tawney Street, has been funded by Lincolnshire Co-Op which runs the pharmacy that supports the large GP surgery which will eventually serve more than 20,000 people.
