Adjournment debate

On 5 December 2012, Conservative MP Liam Fox introduced an adjournment debate on Clevedon Community Hospital.

Plans for a new community hospital in Clevedon were scrapped by the government in July.

The existing hospital, which opened in 1874, was due to be replaced by a £15m facility.

A review of the business case by NHS North Somerset and NHS South of England concluded that the proposals were "unaffordable".

Health care bosses said they would engage with other groups to create alternative proposals that would be more sustainable in the long-term.

In December 2011, the new hospital was put on hold, the same month work was due to begin.
