Children's Major Trauma Centre

The Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (BRHC) provides acute children’s services for children and their families across the South West of England. It is the Paediatric Major Trauma Centre for both the Peninsula and Severn Trauma Networks.

All of the specialist children's services across Bristol were centralised at the BRHC in 2015 giving the region a single, state-of-the-art children's hospital for the first time. This improved paediatric care, for the region, by bringing together all of the dedicated clinical teams from across Bristol under one roof and has been of significant benefit to major trauma patients.

Children who suffer significant traumatic injuries in the Peninsula should go to BRHC for their care. Because of the distances involved, they will often go to one of the trauma Units or the adult Trauma Centre initially and then be transferred to BRHC by a specialist team.
