Building long-lasting partnerships

City of Bristol College and its solution-focused subsidiary, Partners in Bristol (PiB), have formed a unique partnership with the University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW) over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic in a bid to support the healthcare sector.
