University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW) was formed on 1 April 2020 following the merger of the two trusts.
The new Trust will deliver 100 different clinical services with a combined workforce of over 13,000 staff across 10 different sites and serve a core population of more than 500,000 people.
Robert Woolley, chief executive of UHBW, said: “This is a momentous occasion in the history of two proud hospital Trusts and one that wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our dedicated workforce in Weston and in Bristol. I am immensely grateful for their hard work to help us achieve this merger but particularly for everything they are doing for our patients at this unprecedented time.
“Uniting the Trusts increases our diversity, capacity and resilience, and provides a unique opportunity to bring together the things that make both the Weston and Bristol hospitals great places to work and to receive care, in order to create an even better and stronger organisation for the future.
“It’s important to reassure our service users that, while the name of the Trust may have changed, they will continue to receive care from the same staff in the same location that they do now.”
The names of our component hospitals, including Weston General Hospital and the Bristol Royal Infirmary, will remain unchanged.
