Nursing and Midwifery - Proud To Care

"Welcome to University Hospitals Bristol Nursing and Midwifery - Proud to Care website


I have a deep sense of pride in the nursing and midwifery staff of University Hospitals Bristol and the care they give to hundreds of thousands of patients across Bristol and the south west of England each year. Following their inspection in November last year, the Care Quality Commission has assessed the Trust as Outstanding - making us one of only half a dozen acute Trusts in England to achieve this recognition.  In early June, the Care Quality Commission published the results of the 2016 national survey of adult inpatients. I am absolutely delighted that UH Bristol Trust was in the top ten Trusts in the country for patient experience. Furthermore, we were one of only two general acute Trusts in the top ten.

The hugely positive feedback from our patients chimes with the CQC's observations when they inspected last year and commented on the humanity and compassion of staff here. This is yet more evidence that the Trusts values of respecting everyone, embracing change, recognising success and working together are alive, and that patient care is the focus of everything we do. This is a great achievement and is testimony to the dedication, passion and focus of all of our nursing and midwifery staff.  We are though far from complacent and continue to work hard in nursing and midwifery with our MDT colleagues to  improve the services and experience for our patients and their families."  - Carolyn Mills - chief nurse.
