Our Mission Statement



Staff Changes

4th Year Students

From 27 January 2021 to June 2021 there will be 4th year students sitting in or running some GP consultations. The student will either sit in and observe the consultation and may ask questions or run the consultation. This is to aid learning they will soon qualify as doctors.

If you would rather a student was not present, please tell the receptionist or the GP you have the appointment with.



You can still contact your GP, 111 online or call 111 for help.  We'll give you the care you need

We continue to work as normal.  Please continue to contact us in the usual way and do not delay contacting us with important health problems.

Corona Virus Advice

The vaccination programme is now vaccinating people with underlying health conditions and unpaid carers.  Click here for more information about carers.


We are working hard to move through the priority cohorts as quickly as possible, and we will contact you when it is your turn to book. Please do not contact us until we get in touch with you. Our only limitation in speed of delivery is the supply of vaccine.

 

You may receive a letter from the national booking team inviting you to get your vaccine at Ashton Gate or other Mass Vaccinations Centres. You are welcome to book your appointment there or wait to be invited by your GP surgery to your local vaccination centre.


You will be notified when its your turn

When we contact you, please attend your booked appointments and please continue to follow all the guidance to control the spread of the virus
and save lives.  Click here for answers to some frequently asked questions.

You can find more information on the Conorona Virus vaccine here and click here for information on your 2nd vaccination.


If you have any symptoms of coronavirus such as a new persistent dry cough, fever or loss of taste or smell, please do not come to the surgery.  Go to www.111.nhs.uk/covid-19 for information.  If your symptoms have become worse, use the NHS 111 online service.  If you do not have access online, please call NHS 111 service for further advice.

Most clinical appointments have been changed to telephone calls, so please wait for the clinician to call you, if you have a pre-booked appointment.  Following your telephone consultation the clinician may invite you to attend a face to face appointment at the surgery.  If you are invited to attend please do not arrive early as our waiting room is currently closed.

PLEASE ENSURE YOU WEAR A FACE COVERING IF ATTENDING THE SURGERY.  Click here for more information on when to wear a face covering, how to make your own and a printable exemption badge

Routine appointments

If you have a routine appointment booked, eg for injections or dressings, still attend your appointment unless you have been notified of a cancellation.

 

Child Immunisations Clinic

Child immunisations will take place on Tuesdays, but please DO NOT BRING SIBLINGS.  When you arrive ensure we have your mobile number and you will then be asked to remain in your car with your baby until you are telephoned by the nurse for the injection.  If you do not arrive by car, please be aware you may be waiting in adverse weather.  Please come prepared.

Introducing... new physical groups in South Bristol !

Changes Bristol is excited to announce that we will be opening five new in-person groups across South Bristol to support our community's mental health.  Government guidelines indicate that support groups can still run, and we have put in place various measures to help keep you, our staff, and volunteers safe at this challenging time. These include wearing masks, physical distancing, Track & Trace procedures, and providing hand washing/sanitising facilities. Each of the venues we have chosen are airy and spacious to accommodate up to 15 people socially-distanced. For more details on what we're doing to keep you safe, please see our website.
