Garston hospital meeting
Had a quick briefing earlier this week with reps from the PCT about the plans, specifically building plans, for Garston Hospital (really Sir Alfred Jones Memorial Hospital). It's a tricky issue as there are a lot of people, myself included, attached to the building given its history and prominent position. Work is going on to incorporate as much history as possible into the building, but I still have reservations. The hospital is actually not in my ward but its part of the wider Garston area and there is a lot of affection in the wider community so I am very interested about getting the best possible deal for everybody.
