A £4.5m NHS primary care centre in Stoke-on-Trent has been officially opened.

The building on Scotia Road in Tunstall includes a GP practice, a dental centre, blood testing facilities and a range of other services.

Work began on the project in November 2010 and the centre opened to patients in September.

Graham Urwin, head of Staffordshire's PCTs, said he expected about 70,000 patients to use it each year.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council's leader Mohammed Pervez said it was great to see different health functions coming together under one roof.

Mr Urwin said the official opening was a chance to celebrate.
