  • Type: Fixed Term
  • Location: Downend, Bristol
  • Practice(s): Downend Health Group

 

Downend Health Group was formed in 2018 due to the merger of two well established practices located in the suburbs of Bristol, The Willow Surgery and Christchurch Family Medical Centre. The surgery operates from two purpose-built premises located less than a mile apart.

This excellent facility offers patients a family friendly service with efficient and easy access to a highly trained team of health care professionals. The medical team comprises GPs, clinical pharmacists, paramedics, and nurses. Our patient assistants and administration team provide excellent support both front of house and behind the scenes.

The surgery provides modern healthcare services and both buildings offer calm, welcoming environment for patients, with enhanced and pleasant working conditions for clinicians and staff. The GPs are enthusiastic about the capacity their premises provide as they can offer services to the wider community which include additional services such as acupuncture, physiotherapy, and counselling services, not all of which is NHS.
