The Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI) is a teaching hospital with
close links to Bristol University and provides acute medicine and
surgery, critical care, trauma, orthopaedic and accident and
emergency services to the population of Bristol. It also provides
the centre for cardio-thoracic services for the south west and for
cystic fibrosis care in the Severn area.
The BRI has been providing care since 1737.
The hospital comprises four principal buildings, the original
Old Building, the King Edward VII Building, which is opposite the
Old Building on Upper Maudlin Street, the Queen's Building, which
is also on Upper Maudlin Street. The BRI's new ward block has now
begun opening to patients. The new building is situated behind the
Queen's Building, and is accessible from the main entrance to the
BRI on Upper Maudlin Street.
