State-of-the-art medical centre in Cleethorpes set to open soon
DOCTORS are "very excited" to be moving into Cleethorpes' new super surgery.
On February 18, two surgeries will move into a state-of-the-art healthcare centre on the site of the demolished Lynton pub, Taylor's Avenue. It will treat 6,000 patients a year, with a pharmacy and convenience store.
Dr Zaro's surgery, Aspen Court, Cleethorpes, has expanded before the move, taking on a new partner GPfrom another local surgery and becoming Doctors Mushtag Ahmed Zaro and Omar Qureshi.
Practice manager Jane Lond said they will offer minor surgery – such as the removal of small cysts and toenails.

She said: "Our staff and patients are very excited about the move which will allow us to improve the quality of our service and offer more, rather than referring people elsewhere.
"This has allowed Dr Qureshi to join as a partner which will increase the number of patients.
"Most of the preparations for the move are already complete and it will take place over a weekend."
Construction company Lindum, contracted to build the centre for client Ryedale Estates Ltd, has confirmed they are on track for the planned handover to North East Lincolnshire Care Trust Plus.
Cathy Kennedy, deputy chief executive of the North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said the centre was the final development in a ten-year local investment.
She added: "This programme has dramatically improved the environment for the provision of GP services to the population of North East Lincolnshire and supported better integration of a range of health and social care services. It has enabled more services to be delivered from high quality community-based facilities."
The pub closed in March 2010 and the Primary Care Trust said it was considering the site for a large-scale medical facility that May.
In February 2011, North East Lincolnshire Council rejected the application because the convenience store would impact on nearby shops and increase traffic.
Plans were re-submitted in April that year and approved.
Demolition work began a month later, and the pub was reduced to rubble by October.
