Inpatients

About the service

Our inpatients facility is currently temporarily closed while essential maintenance and refurbishment works take place. For further information visit the news area.

Clevedon Community Hospital opened its doors in 1874 and provides inpatient care for the people of North Somerset. The hospital looks and feels quite different to a large modern city hospital and in the past has been used for respite and convalescence. We now focus on delivering proactive rehabilitation services to aid discharge and prevent hospital admission.

Medical care and cover

There is 24-hour access to medical cover at the hospital. During your stay a doctor from a designated general practice will have overall clinical responsibility for your treatment.

The practice will be one of three based in Clevedon:

• Sunnyside Surgery

• The Green Practice

• Riverside Practice

A specialist consultant is also available on a weekly basis to advise on your care.

Our Philosophy

At Clevedon Community Hospital all of our staff will:

• Work with all health and social care professionals to assist you in becoming well and as independent as possible

• Assist those who need specialist peace and dignity required at the end of life

• Work towards a plan for discharge as quickly and safely as appropriate

• Listen to your wishes and the wishes of those who care about you.

Other Professionals

During your stay you may need the services of other professionals such as nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists and support workers. These will be available as needed and if appropriate these services will continue after you have been discharged.

Community Treatment Centre (CTC)

What is the CTC?

The Community Treatment Centre (CTC) offers a variety of day case treatments (meaning you won't have to stay overnight) which can be accessed by referral from your GP or other practitioner.

Treatments include blood transfusion, venesection (‘blood letting’), intravenous drug administration (especially antibiotics), and care and treatment of mild to moderate cellulitis (including any related wound/leg ulcer care).

The CTC has its own separate external entrance at the rear of the building. The CTC has three comfortable reclining chairs where patients can watch TV if they wish to whilst receiving treatment. 

Patients can wear their own clothes and all treatments are on a day case basis.  Due to the nature of treatments and limited space, patients are requested to bring in minimal personal items, but a book and/or device with headphones to listen to music may be appropriate.

Who is the CTC for?

The CTC is for adults of all ages. Patients either need to be independently mobile or mobile with minimal assistance, e.g. a walking aid or with the help of one person.

How do I access the CTC?

The CTC is run on an appointment basis. We accept referrals from GPs and other healthcare practitioners.

What are the CTC opening hours and where is it located?

The CTC is located in the main inpatient building adjacent to Lister Ward.  It is open 8am - 8pm, 365 days a year.

Visiting Hours
