Vascular surgery

North Bristol NHS Trust now delivers the vascular service for Bristol, North Somerset, Bath, North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Please see the website here.

These changes will bring together specialist teams from across the region to improve the quality of inpatient surgical care you receive.

A specialist vascular surgeon and specialist vascular interventional radiologist will be available 24/7 to manage vascular emergencies and post-operative complications at the new unit within Southmead Hospital. It will also provide a 39-bed dedicated vascular ward, specialist amputation rehabilitation and a state of the art £1.5 million investment in a 'hybrid' operating theatre for the delivery of less invasive procedures. The new unit will provide a regional complex aortic aneurysm service and have a sufficient volume of activity to improve patient safety and outcomes.

We understand this means a change for you and your relatives or carers, but where possible you'll still be looked after by the same team that you are used to.
