TROWBRIDGE'S campus project has been handed a huge boost after it was announced work is set to begin on a new healthcare centre in autumn this year.

The NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) delivered a presentation to Trowbridge Area Board on Thursday which stated it has secured £3.8 million of funding to spend on a new primary care unit facility on land adjacent to St Stephen's Place, off County Way.

It is time-limited funding which must be spent before 2019, so progress is expected to be made quickly on the site, which will eventually act as a replacement for the struggling Trowbridge Community Hospital.
