Account of the Quality of Clinical Services
North Bristol NHS Trust is the largest hospital trust in the South West of England, providing hospital and community healthcare to the residents of Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. We are also a specialist regional centre for a number of services including neurosurgery, renal (kidney) medicine, plastics, orthopaedics and major trauma.
We aim for ‘Exceptional healthcare personally delivered’ by providing services of exemplary quality, ensuring no unnecessary waits or delays, providing care in high quality facilities and having well trained and caring staff.
During 2015/16, the Trust provided a wide range of NHS services. These are listed in Appendix 3.
