Market Harborough’s £7.5m new hospital has finally opened this morning (Tuesday) after a 29-year campaign.
The Mail is at the scene to speak to the first patients as they arrive at the new St Luke’s Treatment Centre on Leicester Road.
Hospital campaigner Cllr Phil Knowles said: “I’m delighted to see this fantastic new health facility opened. Harborough’s new hospital is going to serve the community for many years.”
We will report back on events this morning and a full report will be published in Thursday’s paper.
