How to find us

Important Notice:
As part of UH Bristol's work to standardise the signage within our hospitals, the Bristol Eye Hospital will be known as Zone H as of Monday, 12 June 2017. This change will bring the Bristol Eye Hospital in line with the current Zones A to D which includes the Bristol Royal Infirmary, King Edward Building, Bristol Heart Institute and Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre. Work to update the signs will begin soon, more details around dates to come. All departments, wards and other functions off the main corridors will be given a unique location code which is made up of the zone, floor level and location number -e.g. H304: H (zone)-3 (level)-04(location number). The ground floor of the Eye Hospital will be renamed as Level 0. The names of locations will be updated but the physical locations of clinics and areas will not be changed and will remain as they were before. Your appointment letter will eventually have the new location codes but some people may still receive a letter with the old location name during this time of transition. Staff will be on hand to help you find your appointment location if you have any queries. New location names can be found here. For any questions about your appointment location, please ask a member of staff at the Bristol Eye Hospital and they will be happy to help.
