Our Vision

North Bristol NHS Trust provides hospital and community healthcare to the residents of Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset and we are also a specialist regional centre for major trauma, neurosciences, plastics and burns, orthopaedics and renal services.

Our aim at North Bristol NHS Trust is to deliver exceptional healthcare for all our patients and carers.

We believe we will deliver these objectives for our patients by:

  • Improving the patient experience and safety
  • Progressing significantly towards no waits\no delay
  • Offering a service that will be leading edge, delivered in high quality environments
  • Providing a great place to work for our staff
  • Building a strong, healthy, viable organisation

As the largest teaching Trust in the South West we have internationally renowned medical teams delivering incredible outcomes for our patients through the hard work and dedication of our 9,000 doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals and support staff.

For many years we have been at the forefront of new medical techniques and innovations, including brain and spinal surgery, joint replacement and the world's first radar breast imaging system, to name but a few.

We provide award-winning services and receive a significant number of referrals from other hospital Trusts for our wide range of specialist services. We treat over 300,000 patients a year, including over 6,300 births, and yet our philosophy is that each patient is treated with respect and dignity and, most important of all, as a person.

To protect privacy and dignity we aim to provide all inpatient beds in single sex areas and we have instigated protected visiting hours to ensure patients get their full rest and recuperation. Over 500 of our front line reception and support staff have received training in customer care, plus our award-winning freshly prepared and locally sourced food caters for all medical, dietary, religious and cultural needs.

Patient and visitor safety is at the forefront of delivering exceptional healthcare, not only the focus on safe medical procedures, cleanliness and infection control but also personal safety whilst visiting us.

We work with our patients, their representatives and our staff to ensure we focus correctly on the things that matter to our patients to deliver real quality care. We are recognised within the region for excellent patient safety and have previously been awarded a '5 star' rating by Dr Foster's, the UK's leading independent provider of healthcare comparative information. We were the only Acute Trust in the South West to receive this top rating.

Our aim is to exceed all the Department of Health's priorities, so all our patients receive treatment within 18 weeks of referral, all patients with suspected cancer see a consultant within 2 weeks and nearly all patients arriving at our Emergency Department are either discharged or admitted within 4 hours of arrival.

In Spring 2014 we will have completed the redevelopment of our new state-of-the-art hospital at Southmead, and by bringing together our hospital teams at Frenchay and Southmead on one site we can provide the very best of healthcare in facilities our patients deserve.

By focusing on exceptional, safe, personal and efficient healthcare, North Bristol NHS Trust aspires to be known for 'Exceptional healthcare, personally delivered.'
