New hospital announcement in the summer?

Story posted on

Plans for a new hospital in the Melksham area are still up in the air – but news is expected this summer.

In July 2017, the Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) announced plans for a multi-million pound investment in health services in West Wiltshire, which included plans to redevelop primary health care services in the Melksham, Trowbridge and Chippenham area.

The plans included a new 24-hour hospital, with Melksham as one of the possible locations.

However, since the announcement was made, no further updates have been provided by the CCG.

In response to questions from Melksham News, the CCG has disclosed that the original strategic outline case for Chippenham, Melksham and Trowbridge has become part of a bigger piece of work, with further news expected in the summer.

A spokesperson for the CCG said, “The strategic outline case for Chippenham, Melksham and Trowbridge has been taken into the wider work assessing the service and estates need across the whole of Wiltshire. The strategic estates transformation plan is expected to be published in summer this year.”
