2014 opening for new hospital
CLEVEDON’S new hospital is set to open in January 2014 if changes to the project are approved.
Work on the hospital was due to start in December with a target completion date of summer 2013.
However, it was announced in November that due to the ‘changing environment in which the NHS is operating’ the proposals were to be updated.
A new business case for the hospital, which is to be built on the site of a former Kwik Save supermarket in Millcross, has now been approved by the board for the NHS Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire cluster.
This is now due to be considered by the NHS South of England board in May and, if given the go-ahead, the new facility should open in January 2014.

An NHS North Somerset statement said: “The business case was revised to take into account changes to the NHS locally, which meant that more work was needed to ensure the long-term viability of the hospital. This work has now been completed and has been endorsed by the cluster board.”
