A car crashed into the side of the Florence Nightingale Hospice building at Stoke Mandeville Hospital earlier this afternoon.

The driver of the vehicle was taken to the nearby A&E following the incident at just after 1pm.

The hospice confirmed none of their staff were injured following the incident, and that no members of the public were hurt.

In a statement Bucks NHS Trust said: “The clinical accommodation is at the opposite side of the hospice building to where the incident happened.

“Patients, visitors and staff remain safe in this unaffected area.

“Our estates staff are working with the emergency services to assess the damage and minimise any disruption to accessing and using the building.”

A structural engineer is due to visit the scene to investigate the damage.

Bucks Fire and Rescue sent five appliances from Aylesbury, one from Haddenham, a support team from Great Missenden and a turntable ladder from High Wycombe.
