The NHS has appointed a new management team to run Bishopston Medical Practice in Bristol.

BrisDoc has taken over the running of Bishopston Medical Practice for the next two years.

This follows the recent decision of the current GP partners to resign from their contract.

BrisDoc was formed by a group of local GP Practices over 10 years ago and already runs a range of services in Bristol.

They are responsible for the GP Out of Hours service for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire as well as Broadmead Medical Centre, Northville Family Practice, the homeless healthcare service for Bristol, the GP support unit at BRI and Broadmead Walk In Centre on behalf of Bristol Community Health.

We are pleased to have an organisation with such a strong track record taking over the management and provision of primary care services at Bishopston Medical Practice and we are confident that patients will continue to get the same high quality services.

We look forward to continue to work closely with patients, staff and other stakeholders on what services are needed for the future.

– Debra Elliott, NHS England South West Director of Commissioning

With BrisDoc taking over the running of Bishopston Medical Practice for the next two years, we can now engage with patients to find out what they want from their practice in the long term.

We are committed to working across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire to ensure the long-term future of primary care best meets the needs of patients.

– Dr Martin Jones, Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group Chair
