New search for funding after £10m health centre bid fails

Alternative sources of funding are being investigated after ambitious plans for a new health centre in Thornbury failed to win government funding.  The Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire CCG (BNSG CCG) had bid for £10 million to pay for the building. 

South Glos Council leader Toby Savage said it was a “shame” that the bid had been rejected, but that “other avenues can and will be explored”. 

The centre would include the three Thornbury GP practices, an outpatient department, mental health and community services as well as a pharmacy.  Recently the go ahead was given for a full business case to be prepared so that the proposal could move forward.
