Take a look inside Southmead Hospital’s Brunel building from the comfort of your home

Patients coming to Southmead Hospital can now have a look inside the main Brunel building before they’ve even left home, thanks to funding from our Charity for a photographic tour of the building.

Funded as part of our annual Christmas Cracker grants, ‘Inside Brunel’ will be available on North Bristol NHS Trust’s website and will allow patients to get to know the hospital’s main building before they visit.  The tour provides clear photographic images,  taking users through the main front doors and along the full length of the building, clearly showing key areas such as the reception desk, patient check in points, pharmacy, toilets and cafes.  Helpful information is also provided along the way.

“Coming to hospital can be a daunting experience, and we’re delighted to fund projects such as this which help make that a little less frightening for patients and their families.” Explains Liz Bond, our Major Donors and Trusts Manager.

“The Brunel building is impressive but its sheer size can make it seem formidable. ‘Inside Brunel’ should give everyone confidence and reassurance in advance of coming here.

“Each year the Charity funds projects within the Trust which improve the hospital experience for our patients and we were very happy to support this fantastic project.”

Gill Brook, Head of Patient Experience at North Bristol NHS Trust, adds: “Thanks to Southmead Hospital Charity for funding ‘Inside Brunel’ which we hope will improve the experience of our patients.
