Who are we?
BNS Health is a trading style of Bristol Community Health for self-pay services.
Bristol Community Health is your local provider of NHS-funded community health services, which include diabetes care, physiotherapy, dermatology, community nursing, children’s speech and language therapy, health visiting, tackling loneliness, prison healthcare and much more.
We are not for profit and 100% owned by our employees. All of our surpluses are reinvested back into services for the good of our community.
We recognise that NHS resources will only ever go so far and will still leave gaps in healthcare provision. It’s our core purpose to make lives better, which is why from 2019 we’re offering a small number of carefully chosen, paid-for services to help fill these gaps, under the name BNS Health.
