Cossham Hospital - the fight goes on

Lots of residents already feel seriously let down by the decision to downgrade the Community Hospital promised at Frenchay – now more and more people are concerned by the uncertainty hanging over Cossham. The fear is that once again the services promised to local people will be downgraded. We're determined to work with the community to fight for the services local people want, need and deserve. We are urging people to have their say and sign the petition below.”

Cossham Hospital was saved from closure following a hard-fought community campaign in 2004 and 2005. Local Labour councillors and Labour MP at the time Roger Berry were at the forefront of successfully fighting off the closure plans and their efforts were rewarded when the previous Labour Government gave £19m for its refurbishment.

Amongst the plans for a refurbished Cossham Hospital was a Minor Injuries Unit to enable local residents to be treated closer to home.

However, the local NHS is not being provided with enough money by the Government so the plans for a MIU are under threat.


We the undersigned call on the NHS to honour the commitment to provide a Minor Injuries Unit at Cossham Hospital, as assumed in the Bristol Health Services Plan and the 2009 Business Plan.

The local community desperately needs this minor injuries unit and we need to make our voices heard in demanding the services that the local people have a right to expect for themselves and their families.


A lot of people have dedicated time effort and given their commitments to improving the facilities for everybody’s well being. We need as many people as possible to give their support and keep the momentum going to show the strength of the feeling on this issue and not to except anything other than achieving the commitment and funding to make it happen.

Tories have never really supported the NHS. I am old enough to remember that every Tory MP voted against it in 1948 when the great Nye Bevan did all the hard work bringing it about. They have been trying to destroy it ever since bit by bit with private enterprise slowly and slyly winning contracts.

We need this facility on this side of town. So difficult to get to Southmead, and that A&E will be over-run with complaints that could be dealt with at cossham, in a minor injuries unit.
