About us

Bristol Eye Hospital is one of the country's leading specialist hospitals. The hospital has 24 ophthalmic consultants supported by a wide range of staff including orthoptists, optometrists, pharmacists and nurse practitioners.

The Bristol Eye Hospital offers a daytime emergency assessment and treatment service, 7 days a week.

The Bristol Eye Hospital is known as Zone H. Find out more about the signage system and how to find locations within the hospital.

If you require the services of an interpreter during a hospital visit, the Trust has a team of interpreters whose services we can call upon. Depending on the circumstances, staff may also use a telephone interpreting service as an alternative.

Outpatient appointments 

To check an existing outpatient appointment, please ring 0117 342 4174. New referrals that are not emergencies need to be referred by a GP. An optician can only refer a patient to the BEH in an emergency.

The pharmacy at the Eye Hospital is no longer providing the standard outpatient service. Prescriptions are now being dispensed by the Boots Pharmacy in the BRI Welcome Centre.

Dropping off

Patients who are attending the BEH (and have a relative dropping them off) can park outside with their hazard lights on and get the patient seated whilst they then find a parking space.

There is also parking directly outside the hospital but this is limited.
