About us

Local people in south Bristol have campaigned for a local hospital for over 50 years. Healthcare is changing and locally we are also changing to ensure that the services we provide are delivered in modern NHS facilities, closer to home, wherever possible. 

The new £45 million community hospital opened on 30 March 2012, and provides people in South Bristol with diagnostic tests and therapy services closer to their homes. It also houses Bristol's first urgent care centre for minor illnesses and injuries, day surgery and a rehabilitation service where people are able to stay as inpatients. The services are provided in a purpose built, comprehensively equipped unit with full access to all facilities and services in the hospital, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, dieticians, speech and language therapy, X-rays and scans and a brand new community dental service, offering free NHS treatment for local people, provided by the University of Bristol Dental Hospital.

South Bristol Community Hospital has taken on many of the services provided by the old Bristol General Hospital, which closed on 4 April 2012.  University Hospitals Bristol is providing a number of services at South Bristol, listed below:

  • Inpatient rehabilitation
  • Day hospital services
  • Outpatients
  • Day surgery
  • Diagnostics
  • Community dental treatment
  • Dental teaching
  • Hospital management
  • Homeopathic medicine
