A NEW £1.5m health centre is open at Waterloo.
The centre is home to four doctors and provides top-class medical services for 8,300 patients.
It has been built to replace outdated surgery premises near the junction of Wakefield Road and Penistone Road and is fully accessible to disabled people.
Practice manager Brigid Collinge said: "It is a super facility for the patients and the people who work here.
"We have consulting rooms, a minor surgery suite, a fully-equipped treatment room and rooms for visiting health staff.
"There are also facilities for us to hold group sessions, for example to help people quit smoking.
"In addition, there is a pharmacy attached to the centre and we can offer training and education facilities"
Dr Hubert Nazareth, one of the GPs, said: "We are delighted with our new health centre. We now have the potential to offer up-to- date primary care services in a high-quality modern setting.
"We would also hope to attract and retain GPs and nurses to work in Huddersfield."
Kevin Holder, chief executive of Huddersfield Central and South Huddersfield primary care trusts, said : "This development is part of a wider plan for improving primary care facilities and services across the Huddersfield area.
"We are investing in high-quality healthcare for local people as part of our commitment to raise the standards and quality of treatment."
The centre will be officially opened on Wednesday, April 20, by former nurse Judy Tadman.
