Changes to accessing the Bristol Sanctuary

February 25, 2021 at 3:26 pm

The Bristol Sanctuary is a place for people to go when they are in serious emotional distress.

The Sanctuary has recently moved from the centre of Bristol to a new site at Gloucester House, near Southmead Hospital. The team are able to support people in-person – please call them on 07709 295 661 (please note that the team will need you to consent to access the NHS patient record system).

After concerns raised by members of IMHN about accessing the service following the move to the new site, the Sanctuary are now able to provide a taxi to an appointment, for people who live outside a one mile radius from Southmead Hospital.

In addition to taxis, the Sanctuary are able to reimburse bus tickets up to the value of a single journey to the service, or a day ticket if people are also returning home via bus. The service continues to offer a taxi home as normal. Taxis to the Sanctuary will be available until the end of March.
