If you think you need to speak or see a doctor or nurse please phone BEFORE 11am
If you need to be seen you will be given an appointment time, and given instructions on how to access the building

We are starting to see more patients face to face - this means there are more patients in the building
The practice policy remains that any patients in the Health Centre MUST wear a mask to keep other patients and staff as safe as possible
If you refuse to wear a mask we may decide that you cannot have a face to face consultation
Please respect the vulnerable people in our community and our staff by following our practice policy and wear a mask when you are in the Health Centre

We are a GP practice located in the William Budd health centre on the Knowle West health park in Bristol. Whether you are an existing patient of ours, or looking to join you will find plenty of information about us and what we offer here. If you are looking to join us you can learn how to register and book appointments using the links at the side of this page. We are always happy to welcome new patients to the practice.

Our SWIFT GP led vaccination site at the Healthy Living Centre is now an option on the central booking system so if you want to stay close to home you can!

Data Sharing

There is a lot of concern from patients about GP records being shared with third parties. The data held in your GP medical records is shared with other healthcare professionals for the purpose of your individual care. It is also shared with organisations to support health and care planning and research.

If you do not want your personally identifiable patient data to be shared outside of your GP practice for purposes except your own care, you can register an opt-out with your GP practice using the form below. This is known as a Type 1 Opt-out.

Type 1 Opt-out form >

You can also opt out on line using the link button below or on the NHS app.
If you do not have access to a computer or the NHS app you can phone and make your choice
The phone number is 0300 303 5678 - Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm (excluding bank holidays).
