DOZENS of people turned out to view the proposed plans for the a new medical centre on the former Cattle Market site in Rugby.

NHS Warwickshire and 95 Clifton Road Surgery jointly unveiled plans on Monday for a new surgery to provide the ‘latest and best’ in general practice services.

Andrew Caldwel, regional director of GPIC Ltd, which is overseeing the project, said: “Our current premises were never purpose built and with the continuing development of medical care we have now outgrown them.”

Outline plans have been drawn up for the new health and wellbeing centre along with a community centre to be built on the former Cattle Market site.

The plans were put on display at the Town Hall on Monday. The new medical centre would sit alongside other new developments on the site, off Railway Terrace, including hew homes, a Travelodge and a Tesco Express. There are also plans in the pipeline for a new care home.

It is hoped that alongside the medical centre there would also be a community centre built for groups in the area to use.
