Performance

In March 2017, The Care Quality Commission CQC rated the trust as 'Outstanding' and praised it for its strong culture of safety It is the first NHS Trust in England to jump from 'Requires Improvement' to 'Outstanding' between two inspections The CQC's chief inspector of hospitals, Professor Sir Mike Richards, hailed it as a "tremendous achievement"[2][3][4]

The Trust did very well in the 2014 cancer patient experience survey and agreed to pair with South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which did badly, in a scheme intended to "spread and accelerate innovative practice via peer-to-peer support and learning"[5] In September 2016, the trust was selected by NHS England as one of twelve Global Digital Exemplars[6]

Children's heart surgery

The care of children receiving complex cardiac surgical services at the Bristol Royal Infirmary between 1984 and 1995 was the subject of a public enquiry chaired by Professor Ian Kennedy which resulted from whistle-blowing by Dr Stephen Bolsin

Laurence Vick, who represented dozens of families in cases which led to the Bristol heart inquiry said in January 2014 that in both the original scandal and the more recent deaths, where he is representing families of six children who died following care at the children's hospital, hospital units were not "fully prepared" for the complex surgery and after-care arrangements He said recommendations made after the report had not always been implemented, adding: "Here we are 13 years on and we still haven't learned from that"[7]

Reconfiguration

The Trust agreed in 2011 that breast and urology services would pass to North Bristol during 2012 while in 2013–14 children’s services, paediatric burns and neurosciences will transfer from North Bristol to the Trust[8] In January 2018 it was announced that the Trust was to merge with Weston Area Health NHS Trust, which runs the district hospital in Weston-super-Mare, some 19 miles 31 km southwest of Bristol[9]

Wales

The Trust decided in February 2014 that it would stop undertaking all "non-specialised, elective activity" for Welsh local health boards, unless covered by an existing contract, because of continuing payment issues[10]
