An outpatient suite in Raynes Park was officially opened by a junior health minister on Monday.

The new St Anthony’s Hospital outpatient facility at the Raynes Park Health Centre, Lambton Road, was unveiled by Dr Daniel Poulter Monday, April 28.

Dr Poulter said: "I was delighted to open the impressive new St Anthony’s Hospital outpatient suite at Raynes Park Health Centre.

"This centre will provide patients with excellent primary care, as well as allowing St Anthony’s Hospital to better serve the local community through the new outpatient suite."

The facility includes a GP surgery and pharmacy.

A spokesman said the new consulting rooms will allow St Anthony’s Hospital to increase the number of clinics it can offer.

Pathology tests will be available at the centre, allowing for diagnostic tests to be taken immediately.
