About the Trust
University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust is a dynamic and thriving group of hospitals in the heart of Bristol, a vibrant and culturally diverse city. We have over 8,000 staff who deliver over 100 different clinical services from nine individual sites. With services from the neonatal intensive care unit to older people's care, we offer care to the people of Bristol and the South West from the very beginning of life to its later stages. We are one of the country's largest acute NHS Trusts with an annual income of £630m.
With strong links to the University of Bristol and University of West of England we are the major medical research centre in the region. The findings allow us to continually improve our patient care.
Our academic links also make us the largest centre for medical training in the South West, attracting the highest calibre clinical staff from across the UK.
We aim to provide healthcare, research and teaching of the very highest quality.
What we do
With eight hospitals in the centre and south of Bristol, we are one of the largest NHS Trusts in the country and the major teaching and research centre for the South West of England.
We provide general medical and emergency services to the local population of Central and South Bristol, and a broad range of specialist services across a region that extends from Cornwall to Gloucestershire, into South Wales and beyond.
As a specialist teaching Trust, we work in strong and dynamic partnership with the University of Bristol, the University of the West of England and several other higher education institutions in this country and abroad.
We are a major provider of medical, nursing, midwifery and allied health professional education at pre and post-graduate levels. Staff throughout the Trust are involved in a thriving research portfolio, comprising around 450 varied, pioneering projects resulting in approximately 600 published papers each year.
Much of the research at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust has changed the clinical care of patients worldwide, particularly in cancer, cardiac surgery and child health and has informed NICE and other national guidelines. Research, teaching and learning are integral to our business and are a key element of our strategy for the future. We aim to produce a flexible, multi-professional workforce, through a focus on evidence-based learning with expert patient feedback.
