Bristol Oncology Centre fire - our Emergency Department is busy

Thursday, 10 May 2018

Our Emergency Department is currently busy due to restrictions at the Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI) following a fire at the neighbouring Oncology Centre this morning (Thursday, May 10).

The increase in patients we are seeing means you may have to wait longer than usual to be seen within our Emergency Department. We encourage you to only use ED in a genuine emergency and other minor injuries services where appropriate. More information is available here

Due to the increased demand on our services following the fire we have also had to postpone routine non-urgent surgery and proceduresfor today and tomorrow. Any patients affected are being contacted and we would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused in these exceptional circumstances.
