Thank you for your continued patience during these challenging times. 

Most of the national Covid-19 restrictions have now ended. However, Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines will remain in place across all healthcare settings, including GP surgeries and hospitals. 

This means that everyone accessing or visiting the practice is strongly encouraged to continue to wear a face covering. 

Covid rates are very high locally and the threat of the virus remains. We ask that everyone does their bit to help and minimise the spread of infection.

Please DO NOT attend the surgery or a pre-booked appointment if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have tested positive or know you have COVID-19.  

Staff are working extremely hard to ensure we continue to provide the very best care for our patients and everyone who needs us. We remain as busy as ever and ask that you ‘help us to help you’ by using the right service for your needs and -- when contacting or visiting the practice -- treating our colleagues with the kindness and respect that they deserve.

Face Covering when attending the surgery

Rates of COVID are increasing and are above the national average in Bristol. Please wear a face mask when attending the surgery unless exempt.
