January 2014 saw the opening of the new Nuffield hospital in Bristol. The Chesterfield Hospital was the original base for Nuffield Health in Bristol. The hospital was closed in 2005 when the Nuffield moved its services to St Mary’s Hospital. However after a £17 million pound rebuild of the hospital, the hospital opened its door in January 2014.
The new facility has three state-of -the art clean air orthopaedic operating theatres as well as X-Ray facilities and an MRI scanner. David Johnson consults at the new hospital twice a week. David said, “The state of the art digital operating theatres are a delight to work in. The new hospital is perhaps a little hidden away behind the old façade but the new building is both a pleasure to patients and surgeons alike”.
Andy Young a recent patient under the care of David Johnson. Travelled from Canterbury in Kent to have his second of two knee replacements at the hospital commented, “having had my first operation at another Bristol hospital, The Nuffield was a superb experience in comparison. Not only are the facilities first class, but the standard of care, friendliness of all the team, the quality of catering and attention to detail is second to none. Having an operation is never a pleasurable experience, but The Nuffield made it as good a one as is possible!”
