New GP health hub opens its doors in Bristol

According to the Bristol Post, a state-of-the-art and environmentally-friendly super-surgery has now opened its doors

A new super-practice has opened in Bristol, combining four GP surgeries into one building.

The centre cost £2.5m and is part of the Bridge View Medical group.

It has 20 consulting rooms for treatments and minor operations across two floors, as well as a pharmacy.

Unusually, practice doctors were invited to work with the architects on the building’s plans. The building has various environment credentials, including panels on the roof for heating water and a sustainable drainage system.

The building has already been awarded a BREEAM Excellent rating – a top sustainability award.

Dr Sue Latham, GP partner at the surgery, said: “It’s a real delight to open the doors of our new centre.

“It’s been in the planning for some time, and not only does it offer first rate facilities for all our patients, it also offers all our staff state-of-the-art working conditions.”

The primary health team at commercial property business, GVA, guided and advised the practice through the construction project.

Christian Cartlidge, project manager at GVA in Bristol, said: “Having a sustainable building was high on the list of priorities for the GPs.

“We’re delighted this has now reached fruition, and we’ve been able to deliver a modern, state-of-the-art centre.

“Light, airy and spacious, the new centre will provide a much-improved environment for the practice’s patients and staff.”
