If you provide unpaid support to someone (e.g. friend, relative, partner) who, because of illness or disability, could not manage without you, you can be described as their carer. Caring for someone can affect your own health and wellbeing and we want to find ways to help you stay well and continue caring for as long as you want to.The only way we can do this is if we know about you!
To tell us you are a carer, please complete this form and either hand back to reception; email email@example.com or post it to us. We will then add you to our carers register.
We also have joined with the Carers Support Centre to hold 1:1 appointments on the first Wednesday of each month at the surgery with one of their Carer-GP-Liaisons. If you are interested in an appointment, please contact us and we will arrange this for you. For any further support from Carers Support Centre, please visit their website: https://www.carerssupportcentre.org.uk/
Patient Participation Group
We like to know what our patients want from the Health Centre. We therefore have a selection of patients on our Patient Participation Group (PPG). The next meeting will be on Wednesday 4th November at 7:00pm at Horfield Health Centre.
We meet every now and again to get feedback and ideas. We also contact them if we need specific information.
If you would be interested in joining the PPG, please contact us - we will always welcome new members.

Language line translating
If English is not your first language, then going to see a doctor may be difficult.
To help you, we have translators available. The service operates over the phone, and we can access it when we need to. Please let our reception team know you need this service when you book an appointment.
We always like to know about things we do well – and also things we do not so well. Please contact Peter Maynard, the Practice Manager, if you want to provide feedback.
After an appointment, you may also receive a text message asking for feedback. This is known as the Friends & Family Test. Please complete this as it helps us understand how we are doing.
Alternatively you can rate us on NHS Choices
