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 is based in the beautiful coastal town of Weston-super-Mare and cares for approximately 55,000 patients per annum. Needless to say it can be a very busy but rewarding department to work in! You will be joining an experienced team delivering a full range of
minor injury and urgent care services from 8am until 10pm. We are also able to offer additional financial incentives and training opportunities (including 80:20 specialist interest post) on top of our standard relocation package for doctors looking to join our Weston division.
