Weston Hospital now fully reopened

Weston Hospital has now fully reopened and patients who have an appointment scheduled from today onwards should just attend at their allocated time. The A&E service is also now operational again from 8am to 10pm.

Staff will wear face masks and anyone coming into the hospital will need to wear a face covering, in-line with recent guidance for all hospitals.

The hospital has been deep cleaned and zoned for social distancing following national guidance and started a phased reopening of its services from June 11.

Patients are also being taken back into the care of Weston who were moved to neighbouring Trusts. Maternity services have also restarted and patients will be contacted regarding appointments.

Healthwatch is keen to hear from anyone using services at the hospital - please go to the Share Your Views section at the top left corner of the homepage. Your experience will form part of a patient feedback report which will be passed on to the hospital, with any necessary recommendations.

Patients whose appointments were cancelled during the temporary hospital closure are now being contacted to reschedule their appointment.

The hospital temporarily stopped accepting new patients, including into its A&E department, from 8am on May 25.

University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Weston Hospital say they would like to thank partner organisations for enabling patients to get the care and treatment they needed in other settings. 

More information is available on this link questions and answers document.  

Dr William Oldfield, medical director at UHBW NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The reopening to new patients has only been possible thanks to our fantastic, committed and hard-working staff who have done an exceptional job in challenging circumstances."
