Bristol Royal Hospital Children Celebrates 10 Years

12 April 2011

University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust is launching a programme of events to mark the 10th anniversary of the new Childrens Hospital building.

Bristol Royal Hospital for Children was opened on 21st April 2001 since then nearly 800,000 children have been treated at the hospital either as an inpatient, outpatient or as an emergency patient.

Dr Jacqueline Cornish, Head of Division of Womens and Childrens Services, said:
We are proud to be one of the leading Childrens Hospitals in the country, and moving into this new purpose designed building 10 years ago enabled us to deliver care of the highest quality to local and regional children and to grow our services. We remain indebted to all charities, groups and individuals whose generous donations made this fantastic building possible.

In order to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the hospital the Trust will hold a number of events throughout the year.  These will include an event for staff, various activities for the children and special guest appearances.

To mark the start of the celebrations, the Trust will display a banner from the Childrens Hospital from 30 March, which has kindly been sponsored by Wallace and Gromits Grand Appeal.

As part of the anniversary year, the Trust is appealing for interesting stories/photos from former patients, staff and anyone connected with the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.
