ONLINE tours of a treatment centre are now on offer for patients.

Care UK, which runs St Mary’s Treatment Centre, in Milton Road, Milton, Portsmouth, has created a virtual tour so patients can look at the facilities on offer.

As well as day surgery, the centre offers screening and diagnostic services, including diabetic retinopathy, X-ray, echocardiography and ultrasound.

Centre director Penny Daniels said: ‘Going for any surgery or test can cause a degree of trepidation among even experienced patients.

‘The team is excellent at putting people at ease – we hope by showing people the facilities before they arrive they will feel even more at ease.’
