The unveiling was held ahead of a community event which will take place today.

Mr Reed said: “It’s great to see this investment in health services for the local community. Hundreds of people have already benefited from the services provided at this centre and many more will do so in the future.

“I believe the centre has become an invaluable part of Cleator Moor, which is why I am honoured to be asked to unveil this plaque.”

The purpose-built centre, on Birks Road, was developed by eLIFT Cumbria Limited under the Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) programme, and includes GP surgeries, a walk-in centre, children’s centre, dental services, clinics for minor injuries, community and outpatients, as well as a pharmacy and educational facilities for health professionals.

Dr David Rogers, medical director for NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “It really has created a local one-stop health shop providing safe high quality services that will be sustainable into the future, which is important to the West Cumbrian community.”
