If you are from outside the area, Bristol is consistently voted as one of the best places to live in the UK, with a rich history, thriving arts, music, gastronomic and independent retail scenes. It also offers excellent transport links and easy access to the spectacular countryside and coastlines of South Wales, Devon, Dorset and Cornwall. Our offices are based in Southmead Hospital – a state of the art, amazing facility with an excellent reputation.
