Football star opens practice

Liverpool and England footballer Steven Gerrard opened a group of four new practices in Knowsley, Merseyside last week - just around the corner from the estate where he grew up.

The Blue Bell Centre, which also houses a pharmacy and other PCT services, is designed with eco-friendly features, such as a turf roof and a rainwater recycling centre.

Mr Gerrard, shown here with GP Dr Peter Ayegba who works at the centre, said he was delighted to open the facility. 'I spent my childhood here and I know that being able to get to everyday NHS services so close to home is crucial,' he said.
