The partners of the practice are, with NHS England reviewing the boundary in which, patients can register. This is to allow us to continue to offer high quality patient services for all our patients. This change will apply to new patients only and the Partners would like to reassure any patients who live outside of the proposed patient boundary that they will not be asked to move doctors if the practice is successful in changing its boundary.


Temporary List Closure

Unfortunately due to staff shortages at Bridge Medical we are no longer taking new patient registrations. (New born babies to existing patients and first degree family members returning to the existing registered household will be the exceptions)

We will review our patient population regularly and will keep all patients up to date via our website and information will be updated in our waiting room.

We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.
