"The centre opened as normal today, and investigations continue into the cause of the fire. We would like to apologise to any patients who were inconvenienced.”

A spokesman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: "We can confirm that the fire service did have fire appliances in attendance. They investigated an issue and left it in the hands of the health centre."
