Coming to Bristol or travelling to the city centre

If you are coming from outside of Bristol, you can either take a bus to the main Bristol bus station, a train to Bristol Temple Meads, or park at one of the three Park & Ride facilities (Long Ashton, Shirehampton off the Portway, Brislington on the Bath Road).

Parking is free at the Park & Ride and you pay for the bus service (return fares cost around £3.50). All England concessionary travel cards can be used on the Park & Ride for free travel after 9am.

Bristol Dial-a-Ride is a door-to-door bus service for any person who cannot use public transport due to age, mobility or communication impairment. The service operates on weekdays; Monday-Thursday 9am - 5pm and Friday 9am - 4.30pm. The bus fare charged is about the same as public transport. Bristol concessionary passes/travel cards can be used. For more information contact 0845 1301 875 or visit http://www.bristoldialaride.org.uk/

We are very lucky at BHOC to have a voluntary driver who can bring you in or take you home if you live nearby. Please ask at reception for more details, and let us know if you or someone you know wants to volunteer to be a driver! (We are particularly looking for people to cover the end of the day/early evening).

There is a courtesy phone at reception for patients and visitors to book a taxi.

Coming from the bus station, railway station, or centre of Bristol to the BHOC

Many of the Bristol bus routes pass through the city centre. To reach BHOC from the city centre it is necessary to walk up a steep hill.If you arrive in the city centre and have mobility needs or difficulty walking, the number 20/21 bus going to Southmead or Westbury-on-Trym stops 20 metres from the hospital main entrance. Ask for the Horfield Road stop.

If you need transport from the centre of Bristol to BHOC there are free hospital shuttle buses from the bus station, railway station, and Cabot Circus shopping centre. Find out more about Cabot Circus parking and the free hospital bus at /patients-and-visitors/travelling-to-and-from-our-hospitals/

We have spaces at the Centre to lock up your bike, and if you are walking you can plan your route with Walkit.

Coming by car or motorcycle to the BHOC

Lifts and stairs outside the main entrance will take visitors directly to the day unit, haematology and apheresis unit, while all other areas are accessed via the main reception.

Details on other local car parks is available here. We recommend parking at Cabot Circus and using the free hospital shuttle bus to BHOC. 

Parking is pay-and-display, and costs vary. Current charges range from £3.40 up to 2 hours to £15 for up to 12 hours.

Disabled badge holders can park in our car park free of charge. Please remember to display your blue badge clearly wherever you park, or you will receive a parking ticket.

Motorcycle parking for patients is available. Please park in designated motorcycle parking bays - parking in non-designated areas may result in a ticket.

You will be ticketed if you park in the ambulance bays. Please check before purchasing a ticket that you are not parked in one of these designated bays.

Help with travel costs

You may be able to reclaim travel costs through the Healthcare Travel Costs scheme, please ask for more information at the main reception or Cancer Information and Support Centre.

If you are on regular treatment, you can buy a weekly season ticket from BHOC main reception. This allows you to park for a week for £3.40. The pass is valid in any hopsital car park. This does not guarantee you a space in the hospital car parks, and you will need to bring change for the ticket machine. Find out more.

Hospital Transport (Patient Transport Service)

The patient transport service (PTS) is provided for patients who require the specialist support of an ambulance crew to travel.

Am I eligible for patient transport?

You are eligible for patient transport if:

  • your medical condition means you cannot use other transport without damaging your health
  • your mobility means you are unable to access healthcare by any other means
  • you need the skills or support of clinically trained staff and / or medical equipment during your journey.

Transport could also be provided to a patient's escort or carer where their particular skills and/or support are needed. This may be appropriate in the case of accompanying a person with a physical or mental incapacity, a vulnerable adult, or in the case of patients needing a translator. This would need to be agreed for each individual case at the time of booking the transport.

How do I arrange a journey?

Hospital staff will arrange ambulance transport for discharge journeys if you are eligible, but you will need to arrange outpatient journeys yourself.

If you believe you qualify for the patient transport service (PTS), and need to arrange a journey for an outpatient appointment, you will need to contact your local Patient Transport Advice Centre to arrange your transport.  They will check whether you are eligible and help you make travel arrangements.

You will need to have ready:

  • your appointment letter with your NHS number
  • the name of the GP practice to which you are registered.

If you need further guidance and support, or need help establishing which is your CCG, please speak to a member of staff in the relevant outpatient area, or your GP surgery.
