Vascular Surgery to be centralised at Cheltenham

new IR theatre


Our Vascular teams at GRH and CGH are gearing up for the long awaited centralisation of the service at Cheltenham. They will be moving to Guiting Ward in early February 2014, when the new Interventional Radiology (IR) Theatre will be ready for their patients.

Read the press release about the moves

Key dates are as follows:

5th Feb 2014    CGH Vascular team moves from Avening to Guiting
6th Feb 2014    GRH Vascular team move from Ward 5A to Guiting
10th Feb 2014      New IR Theatre opens


Any patients who will be affected by the ward moves on these days will be informed by ward staff who will give them and their families letters detailing the moves. Any further questions can be addressed to comms@glos.nhs.uk


As is usual in these circumstances, other ward moves need to happen to achieve these changes. Respiratory staff and staff on Knightsbridge Ward will also be affected and have been involved in preparation for the move.
