Bishopston Medical Practice Petition
Local campaigners, alongside Cllr Tom Brook and candidate Eileen Means, are taking action in response to the news that the Bishopston Medical Practice is to close.
Sign our petition!
We the undersigned are concerned about the decision to close the Bishopston Medical Practice on 30 September. The five alternative practices being suggested are Horfield, Monks Park, Fallodon Way, Gloucester Road and Montpelier. However, there may not be room at these surgeries, and this could leave many residents without access to a truly local GP service. The loss of the Nevil Road surgery could particularly affect elderly residents and those with limited mobility and transport. It may also put increasing pressure on the other GP surgeries in Horfield, Montpelier and Ashley Down.
We call on Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS England to take all necessary steps to enable existing patients to retain permanent access to a local GP surgery.
