BICESTER residents are invited to a public meeting to find out more about the town’s new £5m community hospital before it opens its doors.

Building work at the site in Coker Close is nearing an end and the hospital is due to open later this year.

Members of the North East Oxfordshire Locality Group will talk about what services will be at the new hospital and its vision for the future.

Work started on the two-storey 12-bed facility, which includes a first aid unit, ambulance base, and services including X-ray and physiotherapy, last June.

The replacement hospital will aim to be environmentally friendly with rainwater harvesting, solar panels, a solar chimney, natural lighting and ventilation, using local materials.

The new building has been constructed on land behind the current hospital.

Once open, the old 12-bed Victorian hospital building will be demolished to make way for 14 two- and three-bedroom houses.

The meeting will take place at the Littlebury Hotel, Kings End, Bicester, on Thursday, May 22, from 7pm to 9pm.

For further information or to book a place, email jackie.bowley@ oxfordshireccg.nhs.uk or call 01869 855000.
