Thornbury to benefit from £10m health centre

Thornbury is set to get a massive new investment in health facilities with plans for a new health centre in the town.

The proposed centre will include the three Thornbury GP practices, an outpatient department, mental health and community services as well as a pharmacy. 

Health bosses have agreed that a full business case should now be prepared. The estimated cost doesn’t include any land, and a site hasn’t yet been identified. 

David Jarrett, South Gloucestershire area director for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “The decision to move forward to a full business case is an important step forward to deliver sustainable primary and community care for local people and meet future health needs though the development of an enhanced Primary and Community Care Hub.
