About Us

Spire 'The Glen' Hospital, Bristol offers a comprehensive range of high quality treatments, services and diagnostic facilities.

Established in 1987, we have been providing excellent care, expertise and knowledge in a safe, clean environment for over 25 years.

We differ from many other private healthcare providers due to our ability to undertake highly complex and advanced surgery, and are unique in the South West in having a full intensive care unit that can safely care for cranial, neurosurgicalcardiac and all other major surgery.

Based in scenic surroundings at the foot of Durdham Down, Spire Bristol Hospital is the largest private hospital in the South West.

Whether you need a minor procedure or major complex surgery, you can get your treatment at The Glen. We bring together the very best facilities and expertise that modern medicine can offer, although we believe it’s our people that really set us apart – from world class consultants, our highly experienced nursing staff, to our skilled on-site chefs.

Choosing Spire Bristol Hospital means that throughout your stay you can be confident you will receive the highest levels of care and attention in clean, comfortable surroundings.

Whether you have private medical insurance or are self-funding your treatment, we understand that getting better involves more than just your clinical treatment.

That's why:

  • We care for you in clean, purpose-built facilities, set in pleasant surroundings; and

We want to look after you
