Division of Medicine
We continue to build our caring and compassionate workforce for the future, in our new surroundings. We have created a virtual medical village within the hospital including a Specialist Medical High Care Unit and continue to develop and enhance other services such as Ambulatory Care and out-patients.
Our in-patient service provides care for a diverse number of specialities, including Acute Respiratory, Gastro-intestinal, and Liver failure; healthcare for older adults; cystic fibrosis; short stay medicine, and acute stroke services.
Patient safety and quality are of the utmost importance to us, while we ensure our patients have a positive experience of care. By joining us, you will have fantastic opportunities to develop your nursing skills as you progress in your career.

Emergency Department (ED)
Our Adult Emergency Department treats 60,000 patients a year for acute conditions. The department has a major and minor injury area, an observation unit, and a resuscitation room. We seek experienced nurses who relish the challenges of working in an inner city adult department and wish to develop their emergency skills further. In return we offer a dedicated departmental Induction followed by regular educational opportunities.
The majority of our medical emergency admissions will follow a medical pathway to one of our state-of-the-art, 30 bedded assessment units, either AMU (Acute Medical assessment Unit) or OPAU (Older Person Assessment Unit). Patients will be continually monitored and assessed until their condition is stable and will continue on their pathway to one of our downstream acute medical wards or be discharged to a safe destination. Both these units offer a dynamic, fast paced, busy environment that see a broad range of medical patients of different specialities.
The Bristol Heart Institute
The BHI is one of the hospital’s flagship buildings and is home to leading-edge 21st century care.
We are proud of the care we provide at our Adult and Paediatric theatres.
Specialised services for the Region have now been centralised here at Bristol Children’s Hospital, to create a Centre of Excellence.
