I have been to Southmead Hospital a few times over the last few months - both the old one and the new one.
The parking was impossible before the merger with Frenchay. I was at the new hospital in the week it opened, and parking was a complete nightmare! I believe it’s improving all the time as more parking spaces have been made available.
I was seen in the main building, The Brunel Building, and have not been to the BrAMS clinic so I don’t know what it’s like actually getting there specifically. I hope it’s OK as I have an appointment in August!
I’d say, leave plenty of time for parking, and assume it’ll be a longer walk than you’d like when you get there. The last time I went I got a taxi for the 10-15 minute jouney from my home. Sounds bizzare for a motorist who live only a few miles away. But I can’t cope with worring about parking! I’m lucky in that my boyfriend can drop me off for my next appointment so no parking worries or long walks - Martin has to worry about that!
I’m interested to know how the parking is now, and what BrAMS’s new home is like!
Take care - don’t forget that the parking situation should be getting better all the time as buildings are pulled down and new parking areas made to replace them.
