PLANS for a new £2.5million health centre in Berrow have been unveiled.

The 14,000 sq ft campus-style centre would include a new doctor's surgery, a dental surgery, pharmacy and a mental health unit for the elderly.

At a public meeting last week, staff from Burnham Medical Centre explained the plans to residents and patients.

Burnham partner Dr Harvey Sampson said: "We are extremely enthusiastic about these plans, which will allow us to introduce new community services, in addition to the Burnham Medical Centre in Love Lane."

The plans have been designed by Bristol-based company GVA Grimley, incorporating Osmond Tricks.
