Cossham Hospital meeting

Campaigners fighting for a minor injuries unit at Cossham Hospital will be holding a public meeting in Kingswood this afternoon. The hospital reopened last year after a £19million redevelopment.

It has a birth centre and renal dialysis unit but a promised minor injuries unit has never materialised. The meeting is being held at New Cheltenham Hall at 2.30pm.

Cossham Hospital to re-open after re-vamp

A hospital in Bristol is opening its doors to the public on Monday after a 19 million pound re-vamp. At one point Cossham Hospital was going to be closed, but local people campaigned to keep it open. Now the hospital has new x-ray and ulatrasound facilities and a brand new birth centre.

Overall, it'll now be able to see double the amount of outpatients it once could. Tanya Mercer went along to see it.
