Bristol City Council

The council plays a vital role in the health community as public health is part of its remit. Its role is to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong life among the population of Bristol. Its activities aim to provide conditions in which people can be healthy and it focuses on the population as a whole, not on individual patients or diseases. This remit includes health protection, such as sexual health programmes and infection control, health protection promotion initiatives designed to reduce preventable deaths such as smoking cessation, and environmental health programmes, such as reducing air pollution and improving access to green space.

Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group

NHS Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is the organisation responsible for commissioning hospital and community health services to ensure that the health needs of Bristol's population of over 428,100 people are met. Their clinical experience means they are well placed to design and select the services that best meet local needs, but to achieve this they work closely with other organisations. Their vision is to work with other organisations, such as the local authority and the voluntary sector, so that they can really make a difference, enabling Bristol people to lead healthy lives and access excellent health services.

North Bristol NHS Trust

North Bristol NHS Trust is one of the largest teaching Trusts in the country and serves the population of Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

They are therefore a clinically led organisation which puts the needs of the patient at the centre of everything they do. They know that for people to be truly healthy it is not only the quality of healthcare services that matters. That is why they are committed to working together with their whole population, individuals and other organisations to create the healthiest communities.

South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group

South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is the GP-led body responsible for planning and buying the majority of healthcare services for over 260,000 residents in South Gloucestershire.
