We offer a range of different services at Horfield, including hearing clinics, podiatry, speech & language therapy, and travel advice. These are provided by GP's, practice nurses, other health professionals based here or a mixture of all of them.
When requesting an appointment with one of our clinicians we will always ask for a reason why. This allows our Patient Coordinators to signpost you to the most appropriate service. It might not always be what you think!
For some conditions, your clinician may refer you to another service to continue your care and/or treatment. Some of these services run from within the health centre and some are provided externally.
If you have a question about a specific condition or service not mentioned below please speak to one of our Patient Coordinators or visit NHS Website
We run 2 child immunisation clinics during the week - on Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning. There are 2 nurses present to reduce the time you are in the surgery. Hopefully this also makes it less distressing for your child. If the times are not suitable for you, we can book a more convenient double appointment with a nurse for you.
All of the doctors and nurses are happy to discuss contraception and family planning with you. What you tell us will always be treated in the strictest confidence. Please download this video for more information on the different types of contraception: DOWNLOAD
