Fifth anniversary for hospital


South Bristol Community Hospital has been celebrating its fifth anniversary – with a series of community events.

The hospital first opened in March 2012 to deliver local healthcare for the people of South Bristol.

Caroline Bannister, Speciality and Deputy General Manager says: “Before it opened, the people of South Bristol had to access healthcare from a number of locations across the area and travelled considerable distances for health services that should have been provided locally.

“It is down to the commitment and hard work of our staff that we’ve been able to deliver safe and high quality care closer to home…”

The hospital is holding five celebratory events for patients, staff and the community which started in March with a Mad Hatters Tea Party – and will finish in July. The next one is on 10 June at Bristol Family Cycling Centre.
