About us:

The United Bristol Hospitals RFC was founded in 1946 by local Bristol Doctors post-war to promote rugby throughout the Bristol Hospitals. Currently, we promote rugby for Medical, Veterinary and Dentistry students, but aren't limited to this, as well as local Doctors - sticking to our heritage. 

We entered the National Leagues for the first time in 2017 and comfortably won Gloucester 3 and are now looking to be promoted in successive seasons. We won the National Association of Medical Schools (NAMS) plate for the first time since 2012, aiming to go one step further and win the cup for the first time in our history next season. We started a regular second team for the first time ever and completed 7 fixtures, a feat unheard of in the club before. Further, club numbers have tripled to 67 members.

We have taken a leading role on mental health provision for young men - breaking the taboo around the subject and partaking in the 'BeManKind' campaign to raise awareness. Alongside this we have pioneered a new 'buddy' system within the club helping clubmen of all years. We also fundraised for Cots for Tots in our annual Carol singing around Clifton - raising £730! 

We are constantly looking to expand and reach our potential. We have a strong core of coaching staff dedicated to the club and would like to continue to suceed for many years to come. Our young team of driven players inspires success to all generations and we hope to become a leading club within the South West.
