Southmead & Henbury Family Practice has now merged with Mendip Vale Medical Group
Welcome Southmead and Henbury Family Practice to Mendip Vale Medical Group!
The GP Partners and their teams at Mendip Vale and Southmead & Henbury Family Practice have a shared belief in making a continued positive difference for patients and feel it is the right time to combine efforts and build upon the successes to date. We share a common goal in wanting to provide the best possible service for all our patients and ensuring their healthcare needs are met.
Our patient numbers are increasing as are the complexities of patient conditions. As the demands and pressures on GP practices continue to increase this provides an opportunity to increase the sustainability of this primary care GP Practice as well as providing a longer term plan for primary care provision for the local area.
This allows us to expand our skilled multi-disciplinary team (MDT) of GPs, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Paramedics, Nurses and Health Care Assistants as well as physiotherapists and mental health workers. MDT working minimises professional isolation for our clinicians and makes the Practice more likely to recruit in a highly competitive market. We are are able to benefit from economies of scale which frees up resources to reinvest and recruit more clinical staff.
Our aim is to continue to provide our patients with safe and effective care, both now and in the future. Working together we will look after over 80,000 patients from 8 sites across North Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
