Overview

Front entrance of the hospital

Weston General Hospital is part of Weston Area Health NHS Trust - the smallest actue Trust in England. We're a small, friendly, patient focused NHS General Hospital able to offer a range of excellent clinical services both on-site and in conjunction with larger hospitals across Bristol and Somerset. 

Our clinical, nursing and allied health staff (such as physiotheraptists, occupational therapists and dieteticians) are well qualified and dedicated to delivering high standards of patient treatment and care. Our patients' well-being is at the heart of everything we do . 

We provide different specialities such as: Orthopedics, a midwife run maternity unit, an Oncology Day Unit, Cardiology, WISH sexual health clinic, day surgery, general surgery and a 24 hour Emergency Department that sees about 55,000 people a year. We also provide specialist support for elderley patients such as 'Bob's Forget me Not' dementia cafe on Kewstoke ward and stroke services.

Our in-patients benefit from free Wi-Fi and can bring smart phones and tablets into the hospital. Alternatively patients can listen to in-house entertainment from our award winning Sunshine radio station (who also broadcast a request show for patients). 

We offer a full chaplaincy service for people of all faiths and none.

In a national survey our food was voted among the best in the region scoring 98.9%. Catering for all lifestyle and religious dietary requirements we offer vegetarian, halal, kosher and gluten free options.

For patients and visitors we have a Costa Coffee in the front entrance and Rafters restaurant on the ground floor. Rafters also has outside seating overlooking our duckpond offering a place of calm and peace. 

We are also able to provide private facilities for our patients through The Waterside Suite where all profits go straight back into the hospital.
