The new Southmead Hospital is to be given a new name… and Bristol people have the chance to vote on its new title.
Name the new Southmead hospital.
Southmead and Frenchay hospitals are coming together to create a new world-class hospital on the Southmead site in spring 2014 and over the last few months staff have come up with some suggestions of what they would like to call the site.
After a shortlisting process there is now the following six options which you can vote on:
1) Southmead Hospital
2) New Southmead Hospital
3) Bristol Southmead Hospital
4) Bristol Brunel Hospital
5) Elizabeth Blackwell Hospital
6) Prince William Hospital
The name will take effect in May 2014 and will be announced in Spring 2013, subject to approval from the Lord Lieutenant's office.
If your choice matches the most popular name, you will be entered into a prize draw. The prize is to be one of the VIP guests at the hospital opening ceremony.
You have until Thursday 28 Feburary to make your choice. Only one preference per person will be counted.
