Local services in development

Local healthcare is changing. We're committed to ensuring that the NHS services we provide are delivered in modern facilities and, wherever possible, closer to where people live.

In South Gloucestershire, we're developing new services in Kingswood, Frenchay and Thornbury to provide a wider range of healthcare so that people don't have to travel long distances to acute hospitals.

To find out more about the new facilities and services in these local areas go to:

Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT)

We are trialling a new approach to Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) with GP practices in South Gloucestershire to ensure that patients receive a faster, more in-depth diagnosis to enable them to be treated and recover more quickly.
