Bristol Royal Hospital For Children (Profile)

The congenital cardiac centre in Bristol delivers a comprehensive regional congenital cardiac service to the South West of England and a congenital cardiac interventional and surgical service to South Wales. There is a strong working partnership between the congenital cardiac services in Bristol and Cardiff with the congenital cardiology team based at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff delivering the diagnostic inpatient and outpatient service to the Welsh Congenital Cardiovascular Network.

University Hospitals Bristol provide care for pre-term and newborn infants in the regional neonatal unit at St Michael’s Hospital which is part of the University Hospitals Bristol campus and located close to both the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (BRHC) and the Bristol Heart Institute (BHI). The paediatric cardiac team are based at BRHC and the adult congenital service is delivered from the Bristol Heart Institute. The fetal cardiology service is undertaken in close collaboration with the regional fetal medicine unit based at St Michael’s Hospital. The proximity of these facilities across the same hospital campus enables us to provide integrated care to patients with congenital heart disease from before birth into adult life. The Bristol Royal Hospital for Children is the regional children’s hospital for the South West delivering all inpatient tertiary paediatric services providing excellent co-location of other paediatric specialities.

Outpatient services are delivered in Bristol and across the South West by the congenital cardiology team working closely with local paediatricians with special expertise in cardiology and adult cardiology services.The paediatric cardiac service delivers an outreach clinic service to 10 local hospitals providing approximately 258 clinics per year. The adult congenital service also provides specialist clinics across the network in 7 locations. The congenital service is supported by 6 paediatric cardiac nurse specialists, 2 paediatric clinical psychologists and 3 adult clinical nurse specialists, one of whom is the lead nurse for the adult network. The UHW consultants undertake outreach clinics in 8 local hospitals across South and West Wales and in 4 locations within the adult network.
