Our businesses

At Somerset NHS we run a number of programmes aimed at improving things for patients, whether it is our popular arts and design programme to liven up the hospital environment with music performances and exhibitions, or our Somerset Cancer Register which has developed an electronic cancer patient record to improve outcomes for patients.

Parkside is our private patient unit for those with private medical insurance or those who wish to pay directly. The unit also offers beds for NHS patients who wish to transfer to a private room, or those fit for discharge but who would like a couple more days in the safe surroundings of Parkside.

All income generated by these programmes is reinvested into trust services for the benefit of all our patients.

On our Finance page you can make payments, whether it is for a course, a prescription or an invoice. More details are available there.
