Healthspace Bracknell



Bracknell’s Healthspace seems to be finally coming together. Bracknell was promised a hospital years ago, and local Conservatives have continuously campaigned for one. At least the Healthspace will address some of our needs. I have spent quite some time crawling through traffic to take friends and relatives to Wexham Park, and other treatment centres. An hour’s appointment can take up most of the day for the people involved.

The plans for a Bracknell HealthSpace complex were announced last year following NHS Berkshire East’s Right Care Right Place consultation.
More recently Bracknell Local Involvement Network (LINk) heard presentations from representatives of Berkshire East Primary Care Trust (PCT) and developer Ashley House on the latest ideas for the Bracknell Healthspace.
The space will cater for urgent care, GP services, and physiotherapy and specialist appointments with visiting hospital consultants. A whole range of scans and other diagnostic tests will be available.

It can’t come soon enough.
