Privacy & Dignity

At North Bristol NHS Trust men and women are usually cared for separately. Sometimes there may be wards for both sexes, but men and women will be cared for in separate areas. 

However, men and women may be nursed together in areas like intensive care where special facilities are needed. If you have any concerns or questions about this please talk to a member of the ward team.

If you wish to be cared for by a member of staff of the same sex as you, please talk to a member of the ward team. We will try to take full account of your religious and spiritual needs.
