CIVIC heads from Trowbridge are to meet with health chiefs on Friday, February 14 to discuss plans for new health services in the town.

Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group is considering relocating services from Trowbridge Community Hospital to a new build facility.

This may be situated next to the existing hospital or on the White Horse Business Park off the A363 Bradley Road.

The meeting in February follows the CCG’s decision not to locate them at the East Wing site in Bythesea Road near County Hall.

Trowbridge mayor, Cllr David Cavill, council leader Cllr Peter Fuller, deputy leader Cllr Bob Brice, and Cllr Edward Kirk will attend the meeting.

The CCG recently announced the closure of the birthing unit at Trowbridge Community Hospital from April this year.

Representatives of the CCG’s maternity services transformation team will be at Trowbridge Community Hospital on February 28 from 10.30am to 12.30pm to talk to mums and families about what services they would like to see there in the future.

The CCG is considering setting up a community hub for antenatal and postnatal services, similar to the pilot scheme already operating in Salisbury since December.
