The original building of the General Hospital in Sandford Road was built in 1848 - 49 to the design of D. J. Humphries and since then it served as the main Cheltenham hospital.
Cheltenham General Hospital houses specialist services such as Ophthalmology which is provided by the award winning cataract team.
The Diabetic Eye Screening Unit aims to see everyone in the county with diabetes, with the ultimate goal of saving sight. This service was the first of its kind in the country.
Cheltenham General Hospital is part of the 3 Counties Cancer Network with the specialist Oncology Centre.
Cardiac Angiography and Angioplasty is a recently developed service at Cheltenham General, and so most heart patients do not need to travel to Bristol or Oxford for these procedures.
