We merged in 2020 and adopted the best bits from both Practices: our continuity of care for patients with the statistically significant health benefits that this offers being one highlight.

 

We are a Deep End practice keen to recognise and react to the inequalities in healthcare that our patients may experience.

This runs hand in hand with a passion for championing healthy lifestyles, for staff and patients, and planetary health. We have achieved the RCGP Active Practice Charter and the Green Impact for Health Gold award.

 

We are engaged with our PCN and ICB, and have a full complement of ARRS roles, including 2 dietitians, a physiotherapist, two pharmacists, 2 pharmacy technicians and a patient advocate.

 

Training is a vital part of who we are with four trainers and multiple Medical Student teachers with three medical schools referring students to us: Bristol, Imperial and UCL.

 

The reduction in Face-to-face contact during Covid alerted us to the joy and satisfaction we get from seeing our patients and communication skills are obviously key to this GP role.

 

We have supported doctors with specialist clinics, including: the Bristol circumcision service; the Bristol community Rose clinic for women who have experienced FGM;COVID outreach clinics; dermoscopy training and joint injection clinics.

 

Our practices open days for Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease, Child Health, Prostate Cancer, and Respiratory disease have been a huge hit with patients and clinicians: a mass un-booked appointment session with food and fun.
