Solent Community Solutions Ltd - Gosport Medical Centre Official Opening

On March 23 saw the official opening of Gosport Medical Centre. Retired Gosport GP Doctor Rosalind Reid unveiled the plaque at 7pm in the presence of staff and friends of the Centre to an enthusiastic round of applause.

The purpose-built two storey building on the Gosport War Memorial Hospital site has been serving the local community since September, when it replaced the original GP surgery. The practice was temporarily relocated near-by whilst the new building was under construction, and is now officially open for business.

Local GP, Doctor Burlein said: "Tonight was a great occasion and an opportunity to celebrate the success of the Centre. It took about nine months to build and was some time in development, but I am sure everyone who uses it will agree that it was worth the wait. We are delighted that we are able to practice from a building that meets the demands of patients and staff in the 21st century and feel excited to be part of a facility that will continue to provide the highest quality of health care to the residents of Gosport for years to come."

The building cost £3 million and is the result of LIFT (Local Improvement Finance Trust) partnership working between the NHS and Solent Community Solutions. It is the final piece of the jigsaw in the redevelopment of the Gosport War Memorial Hospital site.
