Meeting tonight to discuss 'Royal Thames Valley Hospital'
PROPOSALS to build a new ‘super hospital’ within 20 minutes of High Wycombe are set to be discussed at a public meeting tonight.
Dr Phillip Lee, Conservative MP for Bracknell, has produced a 66-page report which calls for a ‘Royal Thames Valley Hospital’ to be built at Junction 8/9 of the M4 motorway (see related links).
This would mean Wycombe patients travelling up to the Handy Cross roundabout, and then south along the A404 dual carriageway to the M4.
The invite to the Bracknell meeting says: “[Dr Lee] strongly believes that a broad strategy is required to design and organise services for the region so the very best care can be provided.
“The local infrastructure is presently not fit for purpose and therefore before any more monies are spent he believes that consideration of this project’s completion is important....
“Dr Lee appreciates that healthcare provision is an issue that is both extremely important and that it generates many different points of view. That is why he invites you to attend his public meeting to discuss his hospital vision.”
The meeting is at 7.30pm at Kerith Community Church, The Kerith Centre, on Church Road in Bracknell.
