Doctors have welcomed the opening of a new medical centre in Bedford as they can now offer patients more choice.

The Church Lane centre was officially opened on Monday, November 3, giving Dr Fenske and Partners practice more space to see patients.

Writing on the surgery website, Dr Fenske reassured patients the existing surgery in Goldington Road will remain open, and appointments can be made to see their preferred doctor, or nurse, at either site.

He added: “We have outgrown this building and are very enthusiastic about this new venture, but understand you may have concerns and therefore we want to reassure you we are not closing our main surgery.

“The new site has all ground floor consulting rooms, and there are plenty of free parking spaces.

“We hope you will benefit from the changes that operating over two sites will bring, such as less crowded waiting rooms and shorter queues at reception.”

The new centre was built as part of the Church Lane Regeneration scheme, which has seen new homes and shops built.
