A new hospital in the community
Local people in south Bristol have told us that
they want to be able to access high quality personalised care,
They have reminded us that they have campaigned for a local
hospital for over 50 years and there is overwhelming support for
the new South Bristol Community Hospital.
The new hospital will transform the way health care is provided
in south Bristol by making services more responsive and accessible
to the people who use them.
The NHS in Bristol chose Hengrove Park as the location for the
community hospital because it is the centrepiece for regeneration
in south Bristol. The hospital is a major focal point within the
Hengrove Park development, which also includes a new skills academy
and a new leisure centre.
The hospital will host a variety of different facilities and
opportunities for the development of a strong long term
relationship with local people. For instance, the new hospital will
have conference rooms, opportunities for community events, a
management group with representation from local people and an
artist working with local people on commissions for the hospital to
develop their creative skills.
