About us

Homeopathic medicine has been available in Bristol since 1852, when Dr Black first started dispensing from premises in the Triangle.

During the next 69 years the service developed and expanded culminating in the commissioning in 1921 of a new hospital in the grounds of Cotham House. The Bristol Homeopathic Hospital continued to provide a full range of services until 1986 when the in-patient facilities were transferred to the Bristol Eye Hospital, where they continue to be provided, and outpatient services were moved to the ground floor of the Cotham Hill site.

In 1994, following the sale of the main building to the University by the Bristol and District Health Authority, a new purpose built Department was provided in the Annexe buildings of the main building, adjoining the original Cotham House.

The NHS Homeopathic Service is now being delivered on behalf of UH Bristol by the Portland Centre for Integrative Medicine (PCIM), a Community Interest Company.

The service offering is unaffected by this change with care continuing to be delivered by the same group of clinicians. 

The service has moved from its previous base at South Bristol Community Hospital and is now being delivered at Litfield House Medical Centre, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 3LS.

Should you require any further information about the service please contact PCIM via or telephone 0117 317 1482.
