General (Acute) Surgery

NHS NurseGeneral acute surgery at North Bristol NHS Trust treats patients with a range of general surgery conditions, especially hernia surgery.

We provide clinics and procedures at Southmead Hospital Bristol and Cossham Hospital.

We see many of our patients as day cases.

Your GP may decide that you are suitable for our unique one-stop hernia service, where you have your hernia procedure at your first appointment. Please ask your GP for further details.

We have a team of highly trained, dedicated and British accredited staff.
