Executive Nurse at NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, Marion Andrews-Evans said:

“We have always recognised the importance of local  Community Hospitals in providing a range of  key services, including rehabilitation care, diagnostics, nursing and therapy services and minor injury services.

Increasingly, we will see  our  hospitals specialise in certain services for the benefit of Gloucestershire residents and provide a real community focus. This includes meeting the wider needs of the community in partnership with other organisations and supporting outreach services in people’s own homes, acting as a base for joined up community teams.”
