Norwich walk-in health centre could close over move threat

An NHS walk-in medical centre which treats thousands of patients could close if it is forced to move, it has been warned.

The Castle Mall Shopping Centre in Norwich wants to relocate it within its building so it can be replaced by restaurants.

The Timber Hill Health Centre opened in July 2009 and cost £2m.

The shopping centre owners have offered to pay £400,000 towards a move but the NHS would have to find £700,000 towards the £1.1m bill.

A final decision on its future is expected to be made in the next two weeks.
