Over the last year, we have shared news of how patients are benefiting from a £100m cash injection to develop our vision for two centres of excellence at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

In Gloucester, work is now getting underway to transform the skyline with a significant facelift for the Tower Block. This comes as a further £10.9m government funding was secured to develop the 1970s concrete structure into a modern, contemporary building. This will enhance energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and improve the architectural aesthetics of the city.

Last month, a £10.2m investment at Cheltenham General Hospital was announced, with a purpose-built theatre dedicated to orthopaedic surgery and a purpose-built midwifery-led birthing unit.
