WELCOME TO BRIDGE STREET MEDICAL PRACTICE
IMPORTANT UPDATE > >
After the Government Announcement, from the 19th July 2021 we would respectfully ask that our patients continue to wear a face mask when they visit our Practice.
Since March 2020 we have done everything possible to keep Bridge Street as safe as possible for patients and staff. In accordance with guidance on Infection Prevention and Control our staff will continue to wear masks and this is to allow us to continue to see patients within the GP Practice.
We have a duty of care to our patients and our staff and we will continue to protect everyone who attends and works within our Practice.
Further information will follow.
We are still open and here for you.
We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We are prioritising delivering of care and services based on clinical needs

We are currently only offering telephone consultations with the doctors due to COVID-19, this is to try and limit the amount of patients coming into the surgery.
If you need to speak with a doctor, please call us Monday-Friday 8.00am to book a same day appointment as we are not offering pre bookable appointments at this time. If the GP thinks you require a face to face appointment they will arrange this for you. The reception team can not book any face to face appointments - you will need a telephone call back first (please note the clinician may ring back at any time between 08.30am - 6.30pm).
Nurses appointments - can still be pre booked.
As a surgery we would like to thank all our patients for helping us keep the practice safe and running.
Patient Participation Group (PPG)
Would you be interested in joining our Patient Participation Group?
This is an important partner group to the practice. The PPG is made up of patients of the practice, just like you and act as critical friends for the surgery. Currently the PPG meets about once a month to consider, discuss, inform and activate issues relation to both the Practice and the NHS nationally.
Anyone interested in becoming a member should contact reception and will be made most welcome.
Help us to plan our services by sharing your experiences
Over the last year, the impact of Covid-19 has meant that we have had to rapidly change our approach to delivering general practice services whilst keeping our patients and staff safe.
As such we are asking local residents to share their views and experiences of services provided at their local GP practice and local health centres by taking part in a short online survey.
The survey has been designed to help local health providers to understand what has been working well, and equally areas that could be improved upon particularly during the pandemic. It’s vital that we hear from patients, carers and service users to help inform the planning process as we emerge from lockdown restrictions.
To complete the survey click here: www.bit.ly/PrimaryCareLLR, the survey will be open until Monday 12 July 2021 and all responses are anonymous. For further information or support in completing the survey email: email@example.com.
