Thornbury NHS Outpatients Clinic – Opening Date Monday 23/12/19

Last minute preparations and the final finishing touches are now being added to the new Thornbury NHS Outpatients Clinic, which scheduled to open on Monday 23rd December 2019.

The fantastic new facility, in the heart of Thornbury, will allow Thornbury residents to benefit from improved outpatient and community midwifery services from next Monday (23/12/19)

These modern and secure facilities are within walking distance of eight bus routes and there is free car parking at Castle Court, Rock Street and St Mary Street. They include four clinical rooms and a reception area which will be manned between 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday

The premises are accessible, including by wheelchair, via the main entrance on St Mary Street. The buzzer will be answered by reception staff.

Dave Jarrett, South Gloucestershire Area Director for NHS Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire CCG, said: “We’re grateful to North Bristol NHS Trust staff, and to the league of friends, for their hard work in continuing to provide services in Thornbury Hospital in recent years, despite the poor condition of the hospital buildings.  “We’re delighted that these valued local services have a new, accessible and secure home in Thornbury Town Centre.”

The relocation comes after North Bristol NHS Trust announced earlier this year that the existing Thornbury hospital site was not fit for purpose. The 1920s building is in poor condition and expensive to maintain. With only 15% of the premises occupied, staff had also reported an increase in vandalism and anti-social behaviour.

Jonathan Dean, Property Director at Peer Group Plc owners of the St Mary Centre said: “We are delighted to welcome this innovative and modern clinic to the Centre, where I am confident it will prove to be an important asset to the community and town”
