Reviews of our approach and how we've helped our patients

  • I would like to explicitly thank you and all your team for your support in helping the Bristol system cope with the fallout from a major incident. I understand that some of your clinicians gave up time on Friday evening and on Saturday to make sure that the admissions took place, and I have been impressed by the willingness of all to step up and do their bit to minimise the impact of the incident on safety and system stability.

  • Firstly I would like to thank team BIRU for making me feel welcome during my last placement. A special thank you to my mentors Susie and Jason who have been there for me every step of way and nagging moment! I would like to thank the admin team who have been ever so helpful. The opportunities provided have been superb and the support given to me to fulfil these opportunities has been great. I really appreciate the time and understanding I was given by the Nurses/RA’s/RT’s/RNT’s. I will miss you all ever so much. I have enjoyed getting to know each and every one of you. Never forget how amazing you all are! All the best, Keep up the hard work!

  • I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the unit and the professional way in which patients are admitted and cared for.  It is a complete eye opener for me.  I was highly impressed with everybody, the clinical psychologist, the physiotherapist, the occupational therapist, the speech and language therapist, everybody.
