Essex MP Bernard Jenkins paid a visit to Mayflower Medical Centre in Harwich to see firsthand the facilities available to local patients.

NHS Property Services manages the health centre in Main Road, Dovercourt, on behalf of Community Health Partnerships. The centre provides GP services as well as specialist clinics including asthma, diabetic, coronary heart disease, travel and childhood immunisation.

During his visit, Mr Jenkins met with GPs and practice staff to see the facilities and services the centre provides. He also discussed with managers the potential of expanding the practice by utilising additional space within the Fryatt Hospital complex to provide further facilities for patients including additional consulting rooms.
