The University Hospitals Bristol (UHB) proposes to build a Cardiology Research Unit (CRU) at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. The new building will connect to the Heart Institute in Cottage Place. The image shows the proposed building looking down Marlborough Hill. The Society supports the development which will provide new research offices and laboratory space for the Bristol Heart Institute to become a major centre for the study and practice of cardiac surgery in the UK. We would welcome the planting of new trees in the local area to replace the loss of tree cover from this site.
