Our acute services moved into the brand new, £430 million state of the art Brunel Building in May 2014 enabling us to work together to create the environment for exceptional healthcare. This 800 bed hospital at the Southmead site offers some patients single rooms with en-suite facilities, greatly improving privacy and dignity and helping to control the spread of infections but most importantly of all, enabling each patient to be treated as a person. At the heart of what we do is a caring and compassionate workforce.
