Weir said: “I was thrilled to be asked to open this fantastic new health centre. It is a real asset for our community and I welcome this improvement to our health facilities and services in Sutton.”
Dr Brendan Hudson added: “The opening of this superb health centre represents the successful first step in the Better Healthcare Closer to Home programme and a great day for the NHS.
“Our aim is to build on this success and make sure that the quality of health services and facilities in Sutton continues to improve.
"We want to provide people with the services that they need in a way that is convenient for them.”
GPs and practice staff from the two practices located in the Jubilee Health Centre were also celebrating along with senior representatives from the three local NHS trusts who provide services in the building.
