Tewkesbury's community hospital has been given £12m of government cash for its redevelopment.

The money is part of the coalition's £330m investment for new NHS facilities across England.

Twenty in-patient beds, five day care beds, an operating theatre, therapy services, and X-ray and ultrasound services will be among the facilities.

It will replace the existing town centre hospital which treats about 30,000 patients a year.

Chief Executive of NHS Gloucestershire Jan Stubbings said they now had a "golden opportunity to develop a brand new, state of the art hospital that the community can be proud of".

Work on the site at Barton Road is due to begin in late Spring. The new hospital is scheduled to open in mid-2013.
