Welcome to the Fireclay Health website
Fireclay Health was formed from the merger of St George Health Centre & Lodgeside Surgery on 1st April 2018. Neighbouring East Bristol practices, with overlapping geographical boundaries and a successful history of working together, the decision to merge was taken due to the increasing demands and pressures on GP services. We intend to build on the individual practice's successes, with committed staff and a strong management team providing a patient-centred approach to care.
Fireclay Health now provides GP & nursing services to around 22,000 registered patients, covering the area from Redfield & St George to Kingswood & Fishponds and combining 'business as usual' for our existing patients with access to a greater range of appointments across both sites.

Improving Access to General Practice
We are working together with other local practices to offer registered patients appointments in the early mornings (before 8am), weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) and at the weekends (Saturday/Sunday). Appointments will either take place at this practice or at a nearby GP practice. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Speak to a member of the practice team to find out more.
Annual Reviews for Long Term Conditions
From April 2018, our system will be to review all Long Term Conditions in the month of your birthday - please contact us the month before your birthday to book
Saturday Morning Surgeries
From 1st July 2018, Lodgeside Surgery will not be open on a Saturday morning - all Saturday surgeries will be held at the Fireclay Health St George site (Bellevue Road, St George, Bristol). The Well Pharmacy on the St George Health Centre site will be open and there will be a range of nurse appointments in addition to GP appointments.
