Holly House is saved by NHS bosses
MENTAL health services will return to Gloucester's Holly House.
A campaign to save the facility at Saintbridge was lost when the NHS wanted to use the site to build a new community hospital.
But yesterday NHS bosses announced a plan to use Holly House as a recovery site for mental health patients.
The services at the West Lodge Drive site will be provided in high quality accommodation.

NHS Gloucestershire and 2gether NHS Foundation Trust said it will be used to help people regain skills and support independent daily living.
Shaun Clee, chief executive of 2gether NHS Foundation Trust, said: "Holly House's excellent location means that we can enhance our existing mental health provision."
Councillor Andrew Gravells, cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: "It will make a big difference to patients who currently have to go outside of Gloucestershire for their treatment."
