IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS
Westbury-on-Trym Primary Care Centre has implemented the following measures in response to guidance issued by NHS England and Public Helath England.
As of 16th March we are moving to a phone first model.
You will not be able to walk directly into the surgery.
All face to face appointments have been suspended. If you already have an existing appointment booked with us, this will now be a telephone consultation and the GP/Nurse will contact you. We will still be completing some urgent and/or important planned care but this will be organised at certain times of day and only if during a telephone consultation a clinician decides that you need to be seen.
