A new, state of the art, mental health unit at Peterborough's Edith Cavell Hospital has been officially opened.

The Countess of Wessex cut the ribbon at the unit yesterday.

The new 104 bed unit has been designed to give service users more dignity and privacy.

It contains specialist wards with ensuite accommodation, restaurant facilities for patients, an information centre, fitness and recreational centre and landscaped gardens.
