Bracknell's MP Dr Phillip Lee has published his ambitious ideas for a Royal Berkshire Thames Valley Hospital.

He has suggested the acute centre could be built near junction 8/9 of the M4 and be partly funded by selling off land at other hospital sites, including Heatherwood, if its services could be provided instead in Bracknell.

Dr Lee's announcement comes as health bosses say Heatherwood Hospital has a "long-term future" and that the long-awaited Bracknell HealthSpace may now be based at the Royal Berkshire Bracknell Clinic in Brants Bridge instead of a new building.
