Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bristol Royal Infirmary, also known as the BRI, is a large teaching hospital situated in the centre of Bristol, England. It has links with the medical faculty of the nearby University of Bristol, and the Faculty of Health and Social Care at the University of the West of England, also in Bristol. The BRI is one of eight hospitals operated by the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UHBristol), Bristol's largest NHS trust. A wealthy city merchant, Paul Fisher, was prominent in the foundation of hospital in 1735. In 1904, Sir George White, who gave Bristol its first electric tramway service and established what was to become the Bristol Aeroplane Company, saved the hospital from a major financial crisis, and later masterminded the construction of the BRI Edward VII Memorial Wing, designed by Charles Holden.show more
