HRH The Duchess of Gloucester officially opened Wokingham’s new medical centre, meeting doctors, staff and local supporters as she toured the first class facilities.

Greeted by The Hon Mrs Bayliss, Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire, the royal visitor was then introduced to Wokingham’s mayor, Cllr Ullakarin Clark, Mr Joseph Clark and Dr Clive Edwards, senior partner at the practice.

The duchess chatted with staff before seeing the centre and then visiting the adjoining pharmacy with its high-tech dispensing ‘robot’. She unveiled a plaque recording the ceremony and signed the visitors’ book before receiving a very special gift. Sue Broomham of Hartley Wintney’s Sweets ‘n’ Treats had produced a chocolate version of the practice’s two former premises in the town.
