Refitting work is under way for the new health hub in the former College St School, Caversham. It will open in May, providing healthcare mainly for Maori, Pacific Island, and low-income people.

Ms Miller said the surrounding community was enthusiastic about the project, and were pleased to see the former school transformed into a health centre.

Many different services would be co-located in the hub, including an outreach low-cost dental service run by the University of Otago dental school.
