The Medical Practice based at St George Health Centre was established well over a hundred years ago. Initially based at Clouds Hill House and served by several generations of the Foss family, the practice moved in 1963 to one of the first purpose-built and pre-fabricated health centres in the country placed on the current site. With time, the original health centre became unable to sustain the requirements of modern healthcare and a new building was constructed in 1999. The present Health Centre provides accommodation for the extended (and expanding) Primary Healthcare Team, capable of providing for today’s more comprehensive and demanding primary and community healthcare needs.

In 2002, the practice changed its contract to provide services for its patients, from General to Personal Medical Services. This enabled us to address the local needs of the population by identifying local health concerns in addition to provide more focus on preventative care and National Service frameworks starting with Heart disease and Diabetes. The change of contract enabled the practice to secure funding for extended role nurses to support these programmes and provide minor illness clinics and maintain easy access to health professionals by taking on more medical and nursing staff.

In 2004, the practice embraced a further contract to include the Quality Framework and was pleased to be able to score 1012 out 1050 points (one of the highest achieving practices in Bristol!), thanks to a coordinated team effort.

We very much hope to maintain and improve services and access to services offered to our patients, by building on the hard-work and commitment of our dedicated team. The ever changing demands of modern medicine and changing Government policies are likely to keep us on our toes for the foreseeable future!
