The Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (BRHC) provides a local
service for Bristol children and a referral service for specialist
care for families across the South West and nationally.
The current building opened on 22 April 2001 and was the first
purpose-built children's hospital in the South West. In April 2007,
a further ward was opened to accommodate children's services from
Southmead, with the long-term aim of centralising all hospital
services for children in Bristol at one centre of excellence.
From 7 May 2014, burns, neurosurgery, plastic, orthopaedic and
emergency services will transfer from Frenchay Hospital to Bristol
Royal Hospital for Children. Centralising all specialist children's
services in a single, state-of-the-art children's hospital will
improve care by bringing together dedicated clinical teams from
across Bristol under one roof.
