The new medical centre in Beaconsfield announced yesterday a delay in its opening date.

No new date was revealed on the centre’s social media post.

The Beaconsfield Medical Centre currently under construction will combine the Simpson Centre and Millbarn Medical Centre, while the Penn Surgery is not moving, and will remain at Elm Road in Penn.  

They will remain separate entities, and patients remain registered with their existing practice.

Online commentators shared their opinions about the delay. 

One said: "As its almost impossible to get a face to face appointment does it matter?", while another joked the delay was due to a sink hole.

Until the much-anticipated move is complete, Millbarn Medical Centre continues to operate at 34 London End in Beaconsfield Old Town.
