Full Story at Gazette 25 January 2018 

South Gloucestershire Councillors were given the surprise announcement last Wednesday during their health scrutiny meeting that North Bristol NHS Trust (NBT), which owns the land, had been in talks with developer Redrow Homes to build new homes on part of the Frenchay site.

Plans to redevelop the two hospitals have gained traction over the past few years, with the intention to install 80 new beds on each site; a mixture of NHS rehabilitation and mixed-care beds as part of the Clinical Commissioning Group’s 3Rs programme – standing for rehabilitation, reablement and recovery.
