On the Southmead Hospital site there are two dedicated shelters - across the road from the main entrance of the Brunel building and near the Emergency Department entrance. We ask that if you must smoke that you use these shelters.
We are very keen to help people in their efforts to stop smoking, why not call the NHS smoking advice service on 0800 022 4332 or see your GP? The benefits begin the minute you stop smoking.

Atrium Buggy

A motorised buggy, which seats six and includes space for a bariatric patient, is now available Monday-Friday 8am-4pm in the 280 metre atrium of the Brunel building.

Driven by volunteers, patients and visitors with mobility problems or who struggle to walk long distances can get a lift to their appointment on the buggy - Just wave to stop the buggy.
