    Hospital emergency admission

    With the Easter weekend almost upon us, the NHS has sent out a reminder about what other healthcare options are available if you or one of your loved ones fall ill.

    South Bristol Urgent Care Centre, the minor injuries unit at Southmead Hospital and the NHS walk-in centre at Broadmead are all open throughout the bank holiday weekend.

    Healthcare bosses say almost a quarter of people who go to A&E locally could have been treated more quickly and easily via another NHS service.

    Quote Message: A&E is for serious and life-threatening emergencies only. In these circumstances people shouldn’t hesitate to call 999 or go directly to their local A&E unit." from Dr Lesley Ward Local GP and CCG clinical lead for urgent care

    Press Association

    The prosecution of a pensioner charged with damaging land belonging to her neighbours has been dropped.

    Valerie Vivian, 70, was accused of damaging a strip of land off Miller Walk in Bathampton on October 29.

    She appeared at Bath Magistrates' Court and denied a charge of criminal damage to property valued under £5,000.

    The charge stated that Mrs Vivian "without lawful excuse damaged land to the value unknown belonging to Priors Walk Management Ltd intending to destroy or damage such property of being reckless as to whether such property would be destroyed or damaged".

    Mrs Vivian was due to stand trial at the court on April 12 but the case was brought forward to April 10, when it was discontinued.
