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, and in May 2015 two specialist hospital services for
children moved from Frenchay Hospital to create one centre of
excellence in Bristol.
