Southampton Itchen MP John Denham has opened a new Southampton health centre.

The Weston Lance Centre for Healthy Living has been built on the previous Sun House public house site.

Seven GPs and other staff from the Weston Lane Surgery have relocated to the new centre, which can now cater for around 8,000 patients.

Southampton health bosses also hope to offer other community healthcare services at the complex although no decision has yet been made on what these will be.

Health provider organisation Assura developed the new £5m health centre alongside NHS Southampton City and the Weston Lane Surgery.
