Duke opens Kibworth Medical Centre
His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester has unveiled a commemorative plaque at the official opening ceremony of Kibworth Medical Centre.
The Duke was given a tour of the £3 million facility, which opened for patients in July 2017, and spoke to doctors, nurses and staff at the practice. He also heard from patients, met the construction and development team and was involved in an exercise class.
Also in attendance at the official opening ceremony was Lord Lieutenant Lady Gretton; Janice Richards, Chair of Leicestershire County Council, and Councillor Grahame Spendlove-Mason, the Chairman of Harborough District Council.
The new site has 11 multi-purpose consulting and treatment rooms, a minor operations suite and a dedicated counselling room. It also boasts a car park providing more than 60 car parking spaces in beautifully landscaped surroundings.
Dr Naz Choudhury, Senior Partner at the Health Centre, said: “We’re honoured to have had His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester unveil a commemorative plaque at the official opening of our modern, fit for purpose facility. It has become a valuable part of the community and we look forward to providing services for our patients in the years to come.”
There are 9,500 patients registered at Kibworth Medical Centre. The practice has its main site at Kibworth and two smaller branch surgeries in Great Glen and Fleckney.
The Duke of Gloucester is the Queen’s cousin and a full-time working member of the Royal Family.
