Egerton and Dunscar Health Centre in Bromley Cross has posted a notice on its website stating: 

"Due to a serious incident, the health centre has had to close and will remain closed until further notice. If you had an appointment and still need medical attention today please contact 111 and they will advise you further.

"We will keep you updating with information once it becomes available."

The health centre shut suddenly today and it is not clear whether the closure is due to the coronavirus.
