About the Trust

University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust is a dynamic and thriving group of hospitals in the heart of Bristol, a vibrant and culturally diverse city. 

We have over 8,000 staff who offer over 100 different clinical services across nine different sites. With services from the neonatal intensive care unit to care of the elderly, we offer care to the people of Bristol and the South West from the very beginning of life to its later stages.  We're one of the country's largest acute NHS Trusts with a 2008/2009 income of £454 million.

Our staff have developed leading edge services such as cardiac surgery and bone marrow transplantation that have built an international reputation and are in demand by patients from across the country.

With strong links to the University of Bristol and University of West of England we are the major medical research centre in the region. The findings allow us to continually improve our patient care.

Our academic links also make us the largest centre for medical training in the South West, attracting the highest calibre clinical staff from across the UK.

We aim to provide healthcare, research and teaching of the very highest quality. In this section you can find out more about how we are doing this.
