Our Bristol Emergency Department

As a busy inner-city ED, based in the largest teaching hospital in the South West, our Bristol ED cares for over over 60,000 patients, 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year. Within the department there are over 40 doctors, 100 nurses and around 40 support staff.

Our Bristol ED recently won BMJ and HSJ awards as well as being recognised in two categories at the RCEM awards. With a focus on innovation and wellbeing, the ‘Shine’ ED Patient Safety Checklist, widely used across the NHS, was also developed by our staff right here in Bristol.

Our Weston Emergency Department

Our Weston Emergency Department team sees approximately 55,000 patients per annum, needless to say it can be a very busy but rewarding department! You will be joining an experienced team delivering a full range of minor injury and urgent care services.
