Fifteen years ago health bosses in Dumfries and Galloway started planning a new health centre for Dalbeattie.
Now the building is finished and this morning Scotland's Minister for Public Health went to take a look. Katie Hunter reports:
Michael Matheson, the Public Health Minister for the Scottish Government, has spoken about the benefits he hopes the new two million pound health centre will bring.
He says that a 'state of the art' centre will help to bring the best healthcare to people. He also adds that it could and has benefitted the economy, as 70% of the people involved in the construction of the building were from local businesses.
A new two million pound health centre will be officially opened in Dumfries and Galloway today.
The Minister for Public Health, Michael Matheson will meet the staff and tour the new complex in Dalbeattie. A second centre in nearby Dunscore is also set to open shortly.
