    Default Garston Hospital

    It seems plans are at an advanced stage to demolish the old hospital and replace with a new building. As well as the current outpatient facilities at the hospital, it's anticpated that there will be a GP medical practice in the building as well as a dental practice. The building will have no in patient beds.

    I understand the medical practice and pharmacy at the Banks Rd Garston Village Hall are to relocate to the hospital.

    Just about the nicest building in Garston, and still looks in good condition, surely they cannot be allowed to pull it down!

    My last year in Blessed John Almond I was practicing the wrist action to click my fingers so I could join the Allerton click. I practiced so much I sprained my wrist and was sent to Garston hospital where you waited ages. I think it is worth saving as much of old Garston seems to be vanishing.

    Agreed. No doubt the facade could be saved as in for example Central Libary and Liverpool Museum which were bombed in WW2 and rebuilt. It's all a matter of cost really. However the health authority are not in the business of saving historic buildings. An equally worrying aspect is the move of the GP practice and associated Pharmacy from the Village Hall in Banks Rd to the new hospital site. This cannot be good for the people living "under the bridge".
