Welcome to Portishead Medical Group
We are a large medical practice with many years of experience in caring for the town of Portishead. Our 18,800 patients are served by a large team of Doctors and allied medical staff. We are based in a purpose built health centre conveniently situated in the centre of the town (next to Aldi) with plenty of free onsite parking and near to Portishead High Street and public transport routes. Patients are registered with the Practice but each has a named GP who manages their paperwork. You are free to see the Doctor of your choice.
We are passionate about education and are proud to be a Training Practice. Doctors and nurses in training are often to be seen and we periodically host medical students. We believe in health promotion and patient involvement and have an active Patient Participation Group.
Our Services during the COVID-19 Pandemic
As COVID-19 becomes more prevalent in our area we are continuing to work hard to provide support for urgent and high priority clinical needs.
We will remain open but the way that we provide appointments will change according to local infection levels and the availability of staff (as we can also be affected by isolation requirements). We can reassure you that, following a phone call, face to face appointments with a GP will be arranged where clinically appropriate.
Lower staffing levels can mean that it may take us longer to answer the phone or to process non-urgent letters etc so we would ask you to bear with us during these challenging times.
