Emsworth hospital site consultation

Queen Alexandra Hospital

Tough new targets unveiled to reduce bed blocking at Portsmouth’s QA Hospital

Have your say

RESIDENTS of Emsworth can have their say on the future of a former hospital.

The Emsworth Forum has launched a consultation on what should happen to the site of the Victoria Cottage Hospital, which closed down in 2013 after operating continuously for 115 years.

A report commissioned by the forum on how to improve North Street included three options for the site, including: a two-and-a-half storey building to house Emsworth Surgery; a three-storey building for Emsworth Surgery and space for community healthcare; or a three-and-a-half-storey building for Emsworth Surgery and space for housing.

Residents can give their feedback on the plans online at http://www.sentiment360.com/emsworth-hospital/
