About the practice

Tyntesfield Medical Group is a merged group of surgeries, comprised of Long Ashton Surgery, Tower House Surgery, and Backwell and Nailsea Medical Group.

Backwell and Long Ashton surgeries were once domestic buildings whereas Tower House and Brockway surgeries are modern purpose-built facilities.

The practices are friendly, welcoming and the team are patient-focused.

Offering a mix of same day and bookable appointments, the practices also have a limited number of telephone appointments each day.

The practices also offer minor surgery at most surgeries with some Cryo done at Tower House.

Tyntesfield is working towards working in a locality.

All doctors get study leave which is paid and all staff are given access to and funding for appropriate and relevant training.

Continuous support is given in the form of regular Clinical Governance and MDT meetings. GPs have access to a lead GP for support, and experience is shared in Urology, Sexual Health and Dermatology from our in-house experts.
