We offer extended hours surgeries on one Saturday morning per month. These sessions include some nurse-led chronic disease clinics, healthchecks, contraception appointments and Minor Ops as well as some standard GP surgeries.

We also offer extended hours telephone consultations with GPs, between 7:00am – 8:00am on Mondays and Fridays. These appointments are pre-bookable only.

About Us

Shirehampton Group Practice serves an area in north-west Bristol, bounded by the River Avon and the M5 comprising Shirehampton, Avonmouth, Lawrence Weston, Sea Mills and parts of Coombe Dingle, Stoke Bishop and Henbury.

Dr Ellis opened a surgery in 1936. He was followed by other doctors, including Dr Archer Sr, Dr Andrews, Dr Bush, Dr Taylor and Dr Mortensen. The practice moved from Tregenna House on the High Street when the first Health Centre opened in 1984. Today’s spacious, purpose-built health centre opened in December 2007.
