VILLAGERS in South Derbyshire will be given the chance to assess facilities at a health centre following a £500,000 refurbishment later this month.
The centre, in Askew Drive, has been closed for the past six months while improvement work has taken place, but will open its doors again on June 27, with an open day to be held between noon and 4pm.
The event will also see the launch of a new Caring Always campaign, which pledges to place patients at the heart of services and deliver care of the highest quality.
Artwork which has been designed by pupils from Repton School will also adorn the walls of the newly renovated facility.
Prem Singh, chairman of Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, which runs the centre, said: “We have been able to secure the future of Repton Health Centre for local health services by renovating the outdated facilities and ensuring they are brought up to the high standard which people have a right to expect.
“We are delighted that this landmark building in the local community has been given a new lease of life and a fitting future as a centre for a range of health services.”
