Welcome to the Medical Physics and Bioengineering Department of the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust.

We are healthcare scientists who support clinical services, research and innovation through combining our specialist knowledge and skills in the physical sciences and engineering with our understanding of biology and clinical practice. 

We are accredited for technologist and clinical scientist training as part of the Modernising Scientific Careers programme and support the development of apprentices in medical engineering.

The Department has established close links with the University of Bristol, in particular with the Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information and the Clinical Research and Imaging Centre (CRICBristol) and with clinical colleagues in nearby NHS organisations.

The Department comprises five main groups:

BIRCH - (Bioengineering & Innovation Research Hub)

DRG - Diagnostic Radiation Group

MEMO - Medical Equipment Management Organisation

RPU - Radiotherapy Physics Unit

VSU - Vascular Studies Unit
