We are working together to create the environment for exceptional healthcare – our acute services moved into the brand new, £430 million state of the art Brunel Building less than four years ago, in May 2014. This 800 bed hospital at the Southmead site offers patients single rooms with en-suite facilities, greatly improving privacy and dignity and helping to control the spread of infections. We are currently undergoing one of the largest transformation programmes in the NHS, at the heart of what we do is a caring and compassionate workforce.
