A £1.2 MILLION medical centre which will serve more than 5,000 patients is being built in Barnsley.

Dodworth Medical Centre is being built on Woodland Drive, off Broadway, and will replace the existing one on Dodworth Road when it is completed in the autumn.

Three GPs will be based at the new surgery which will have disabled access, a community cafe and parking.

There will be various clinics, including ante-natal, baby, asthma, a stop smoking service and a pharmacy.
