Construction of new Seaham health centre under way

Work has begun on a new County Durham primary care health centre which will bring several services under one roof.

The Seaham centre, in St John's Square, will be on the site of the former health clinic and magistrates court.

Services at the £10m facility will include GP practices, x-ray and ultrasound services, podiatry, retinal screening and a walk-in centre.

NHS County Durham and Darlington said the centre would open to the public in May 2012.
