Hereford's new walk-in Gp medical centre has reported a steady start.
It opened on December 14 at its temporary HQ next to Asda store on Belmont roundabout and it is now gathering momentum.
In its first week 185 patients attended but last week a total of 309 people sought advise there. five patients attended on Christmas Day.

Euan Mcpherson, spokesman for Herefordshire Primary Care Trust, said early indications showed patients were happy with the service.
"it takes time for people to get to know about the new centre and the number of people attending is gathering pace" he said.
Responses from patients show they are happy with what they found, none had to wait longer than one hour, parking was easy and the waiting rooms and consultation rooms were bright and cheerful.
The walk in centre,open from 8am to 8pm daily. is run by Primecare which already provides the out-of-hours GP service in Herefordshire. The practice manager is Malcolm Sampson.
