Afternoon Booked Appointments
Book an appointment with our Practice Nurses, Clinical Pharmacist and GPs by using our Online Services or calling 0117 973 1201.
We offer telephone appointments for you to consult a GP. If you would prefer not to come into surgery or you feel your problem can be managed over the telephone please call 0117 973 1201 to book a telephone appointment.
If you believe that you need a home visit, please try to call before 10.30 in the morning so that the request can be passed to your normal doctor.
It is for your doctor to decide, based on what you tell him or her about your condition, if and when a home visit would be appropriate. If possible please see the doctor in surgery rather than requesting a home visit.
A doctor can see several patients in surgery in the same time it takes to visit one patient. Home visits are reserved for those who are unfit to attend the surgery.
In general this means those who are terminally ill, bed bound, the very elderly, or those who are critically ill. Unfortunately we may not be able to take into account social circumstances such as transport difficulties or child-minding problems as reasons for home visits.
Out of Hours
If you need to speak to a clinician when we are closed and your problem cannot wait until the next working day you can call NHS 111 service.
NHS 111 will decide whether you need self-care advice, need to go to A&E, require an out of hours appointment or can wait to be seen in your own GP Practice on the next working day.
If you or someone you are with experiences severe chest pain, loss of blood, suspect broken bones or any other life threatening illness then please go immediately to the nearest A&E department at Bristol Royal Infirmary or Southmead Hospital or telephone 999.
