Future plans for Bishopston Medical Practice

The current contract for primary care services at Bishopston Medical Practice expires on 30th September 2019 and the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has decided that patients should be supported to re-register at a neighbouring practice and as a result Bishopston Medical Practice will close on 30th September.

We are very sad that we will no longer be able to offer you care from this practice after 30th September but understand that the CCG had to consider many factors when making plans for the future.

We remain committed to providing you with good care until you register with another practice and to assisting you in making a smooth transfer to your new practice.

Please download and read the following update document from the CCG.

CCG Bishopston Medical Practice Closure - Update - 08 July 2019.pdf

The CCG have also prepared the following Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document for our patients. Please download and read this too.

  • Tuesday 30 July - 2:00pm - 4.00pm - Jessup Suite, Bristol County Cricket Ground
  • Wednesday 7 August - 3:00pm - 5.00pm - Bristol Room, Memorial Stadium
