Welcome to Bridge Street Medical Practice
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
FROM MONDAY 18th MAY we will be using a new online patient tool which will greatly improve patient access to services whilst also increasing practice efficiency.
Engage Consult allows patients and carers to connect with their GP practice and access services online from a PC, tablet or smartphone. It can be used to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and have an online consultation. Engage Consult will allow patients to communicate securely and safely online with the practice to discuss non-emergency medical conditions, or to ask admin questions. It also offers 24/7 access to symptom-specific self-help information and easy access to other local NHS and self-care services. Please click on the link below to contact the Practice via Engage Connect:
