Careers in General Practice in Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire
Swathes of North Somerset are classified as either a green belt or an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the area is home to attractive seaside towns, picturesque villages and open countryside.
Many residents choose to live here for the superb quality of life.
Weston-super-Mare, a seaside resort, is the largest settlement with 76,000 people and is set to enjoy growth through further investment.
Clevedon with its iconic Victorian pier and Portishead with its Marina are characterful coastal towns offering attractive properties and a high standard of living.
Between the coast and Bristol, North Somerset boats an array of gorgeous villages and rural communities where residents enjoy country living in glorious surroundings within easy access of city and coast.
The whole area is particularly family friendly with value for money homes, ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ schools and lots to do. Beautiful beaches and the countryside are all on your doorstep, and the many local attractions include Tyntesfield, Ashton Court, Clevedon Court, Weston Pier and Cheddar Gorge.
Wales is a short drive over the Severn Bridge and the coast and countryside of Devon and Cornwall are also within easy reach.
The diversity of practices across North Somerset reflect the diversity of patients and offer lots of choice. Coastal areas attract a large number of seasonal visitors and older retirees which creates unique challenges for healthcare in the area.
As well as individual practices, there are also growing practice groups that have integrated several practices across a wider geography.
Practices are supported, championed and enabled by One Care to deliver the highest quality primary care. Many work in collaboration with each other to innovate and tackle challenges.
