Paediatric Plastic Surgery

Paediatric Plastic Surgery, at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, is based at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (BRHC).

The Department works in close liaison with other departments where necessary to ensure patients obtain a comprehensive service.
The Department also holds plastic surgery outpatient clinics at:

  • Cossham Hospital
  • The Royal United Hospital Bath
  • Gloucester Royal Hospitals
  • Yeovil Foundation Trust
  • Yate Health Centre

Patients are usually refereed to the Plastic Surgery Department  via one of the routes outlined below:

  • Referral from their General Practitioner if they meet the differing criteria of their local PCT.
  • As an emergency admission from the Accident & Emergency Department
  • A referral to the Plastic Surgery Trauma Clinic.
  • A consultant referral from another speciality, this can involve an outpatient referral or a hospital transfer.

The Plastic Surgery consultants, as well as being general plastic surgeons, also have further expertise. This ensures patients have access to a high level of service. This may also result in patients transfer from one consultant to another, ensuring access to that expertise.

Paediatric Outpatient Clinics and Dressing Clinics are held by Consultant Plastic Surgeons within the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.
