“None of our colleagues was injured and the driver left the scene.

“The Avon Fire and Rescue Service secured a large hole in the building and other areas of the site were not affected.

“We’re looking at how long it will take to rebuild the damaged wall.

“We want to reassure people that this incident has not affected our service to patients.
