Blackfriars & Quayside development

Patient Information Event, on Tuesday 4th December 2018 we will be holding a drop-in information event at Eastgate House, Eastgate street, Gloucester, GL1 1PX between 4pm and 7pm.

Gloucester City Health and Gloucester Health Access Centre are looking to relocate to a new purpose build facility as part of the Gloucester Quayside regeneration development. This provides a unique opportunity to improve patient services and working conditions for staff, and address the inadequacies of the current accommodation to respond to the increasing population in the Gloucester locality.

We want to hear your views

Everyone welcome to drop-in and view the current plans and ask questions. Representatives from both practices, Gloucester County Council, The site developers & Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group will be available on the evening to discuss the plans and listen to your views.

Improved Access

As of May 1st 2018 we will be offering improved access appointments across the cluster (Bartongate, Kingholm, Partners in health & Gloucester city health centre) GP appointments will be available 18:30 - 20:00 Monday-Friday, GP + Nurse appointments will be available 08:00-12:00 Saturday.

These appointments are for anyone with a new problem, such as tonsillitis or an ear infection or a long-term condition that has become worse eg a chest condition – and needs treating urgently. If you have a complex ongoing problem, it is probably best to follow up with your usual GP who knows you best.

The doctor or nurse that sees you will need your consent to access your medical records for the purpose of the consultation. The Receptionist booking the appointment will check that you give consent. Without your consent, they will not be able to see you in this clinic.

Tests and Referrals to the Hospital will still be dealt with by your own surgery.

Prescriptions will be issued on paper, you can then take it to a pharmacy of your choice.
