I was happy to join Councillors Caroline Gruen and Julie Heselwood to officially open the refurbished Manor Park Surgery in Bramley. The surgery will now act as a health hub for residents.
The expansion means that the practice now has an additional 10 GP consultation rooms, better accessibility for disabled patients and further space for an independent opticians and pharmacy.
The surgery can now be used secondment, meaning that trainee nurses will be able to receive vital training at the site. The doctors' practice now employs 48 members of staff.
This is great news for Bramley. It was most rewarding to open such a medical centre here in Leeds, offering both mental and physical health services, including minor surgery, under one roof.
Working alongside the local Councillors, I am pleased to have been able to lend support to the practice as they worked to achieve these much improved facilities for the people of Bramley.
