    A GP Surgery in Brighton could expand if council plans go ahead.

    Under proposals unveiled this afternoon, the city council would lease two of its buildings to the Ardingly Court surgery, and borrow £850,000 to help pay for them to be converted.

    The remaining £813,000 of the moving costs would come from NHS England, and the NHS would repay the council over 20 years.

    If it moved to the new site, the expanded surgery could take on an extra 3500 patients.

    Recently, there's been a particular problem with GP places in Brighton, where 8 surgeries have announced their closure over the last two years.

    The plans will be debated by councillors next Thursday.
