Frenchay staff 'fabulously well organised' for A&E move

Tonight is the last night that the Accident and Emergency Department at Frenchay Hospital near Bristol will be fully open. The department is due to close at 2am on Monday morning as new facility in the £430 million Brunel building at Southmead begins to take on emergencies.

Ambulances will be diverted to the Bristol Royal Infirmary for around five hours while the handover takes place.
