About us

Welcome! We are the specialist centre for non-surgical treatments for cancer and provide radiotherapy and haematology services to Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

We hope this website will help answer some of the questions you may have. We are here to help and support you, and so if you have any questions that are not covered, please ask. 

From the end of February you'll see the new revolving door into the Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre (BHOC) in use, as the work to extend and refurbish the facility nears completion. New lifts and stairs outside the main entrance will take visitors directly to the day unit, haematology and apheresis unit, while all other areas are accessed via the main reception. A directory of our services, floor by floor, is available here.

We're also opening more parking spaces in front of the hospital, as well as additional parking nearby on Marlborough Hill. See our map of nearby alternative car parks.

Planning your first visit to the centre

Our patient's guide to the BHOC is packed with information on our services. Download a printable guide on how to find us or read online. When you arrive please report to the reception desk on the ground floor, where our reception team will be happy to direct you to the right place.

If you have any questions about your outpatient appointment time, please telephone 0117 342 2460. 

Coming to visit friends or relatives on the ward

There are two wards in the centre, Ward 61 and Ward 62.

Ward 61 cares for patients receiving radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment, as well as those who develop treatment side effects. Ward telephone number: 0117 342 2428

Ward 62 cares for patients with haematological conditions, including non-malignant conditions like haemophilia and sickle-cell disorders. Please note that as of Friday 7 June, Ward 62 will have moved to temporary new location while essential refurbishment work takes place at the Bristol Haematology & Oncology Centre over the next six months.  To access Ward 62 please follow the new signs from the main reception of the BHOC. 
Ward telephone number: 0117 342 1862

Both wards have open visiting hours to allow visitors the flexibility to visit patients when convenient. Please help us to prevent the spread of infections in our hospitals. We may need to restrict the number of visitors at any one time, and if you or anyone you have been in close contact with has been unwell in the last 48 hours with symptoms of diarrhoea, vomiting or flu please do not visit.
