Adrian (pictured left) commented "I am really pleased that this building is on track to open in the summer. The new Akerman Health Centre will offer a great new facility for the people of Vassall Ward and the surrounding area. This is a great example of how Lambeth and the NHS can work together for the benefit of everyone."

The new Akerman Health Centre will bring together three existing Doctors practices -Iveagh House, Foxley Square and Myatts Field- under one roof. It will offer a range of general medical services as well as services provided by partner organisations Guy’s and St Thomas’ Community Services, King’s College Hospital, South London and Maudsley Hospital and the London Borough of Lambeth.
