£19m revamp for hospital19th March 2008
A community hospital in South Gloucestershire is to undergo a £19m refurbishment to transform it into the first birthing centre serving the Bristol region.
Cossham Hospital was recently threatened with closure but was saved after hundreds of people campaigned to keep the 100-year-old building open. At present across the UK, there are about 100 NHS birth centres staffed by midwives, either in the community or linked to hospitals. The original hospital was built with money donated by a former MP for Kingswood, Handel Cossham.
