Welcome to The Journal’s guide to doctors serving the town of Bradley Stoke.
Advice from the NHS Choices website:
Doctors (who are also called general practitioners or GPs) look after the health of people in their local community and deal with a whole range of health problems. They also give health education and advice on things like smoking and diet, run clinics, give vaccinations and carry out simple surgical operations.
Every individual living lawfully and on a settled basis in the UK has a right to be registered with a local doctors’ surgery and visits to the surgery are free.
A full list of doctors serving your local area can be found using the Services Directory on the NHS Choices website.
If you can’t find a doctors’ surgery that will accept you as a patient, you should contact NHS South Gloucestershire for advice.
