New Taylor's Avenue Medical Centre will be just the tonic for Cleethorpes patients
PATIENTS in Cleethorpes will receive improved care at a new medical centre which will officially open next week.
The Grimsby Telegraph was given exclusive access to the new Taylor's Avenue Medical Centre, which will house two different practices – Dr Sylvere Dijoux and partners and Dr Mushtaq Zaro and Dr Omar Qureshi.
Both practices have been trying to relocate and build new premises for ten years after their buildings became unfit for purpose.
Practice manager for Dr Dijoux, Debbie Landymore, said: "We have always provided a good standard of care but this means we are able to provide workable, comfortable care in a clean, fit for purpose building. This is bound to improve and increase the services. It is a much nicer environment for the patients and the staff to be in."

Each surgery has two GP rooms, a nurse practitioners and district nurses room and there is also a shared minor surgery treatment room.
There is a Spar shop and off-licence on site, which is a major concern for nearby Lynton Rise residents, who fear it will cause traffic and attract drinkers to the area late at night.
Plans originally included four surgeries but when this was reduced to two, developers added the shop, which opens on Friday, to make up for the loss in rent.
Debbie continued: "This is such an achievement, we have realised our dream and got what we have worked so hard for.
"We understand the Spar is controversial but without it the centre would not have been built."
The centre will open on Monday at 8am and already there has been an uptake in new patients.
Practice manager for Dr Zaro and Dr Qureshi, Jane Lond, added: "We are both very caring practices. We believe in good old fashioned values and we are looking forward to our future here."
The surgery will be open Monday to Friday from 8am to 6.30pm. To book an appointment with Dr Dijoux contact 01472 572424 and for Dr Zaro and Dr Quereshi contact 01472 572400.
