Welcome to Clevedon Medical Centre
The doctors and staff at Clevedon Medical Centre are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.
We offer many services to prevent and treat illnesses to the best of our abilities and within the Health Service’s capacity. Clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and also a wide variety of other medical services including ante and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
The website contains everything you need to know about the practice plus a wealth of health-related information for your well-being.
Please use the icons above and the menu on the right hand side to navigate the full site and we welcome your feedback or suggestions.
We regularly survey patients for feedback on a range of issues concerning the practice. Please check the survey box below and help us to improve our services.
Getting the right appointment
Sometimes the GP isn’t really the best person to see. You could be seen and treated quicker and more appropriately by a nurse practitioner / physician associate / acute care practitioner or it may be better to have a phone call with a physiotherapist, or to make an enquiry via our e-consultation service. In some cases, the GP practice might not be the right place at all for your query.
Our receptionists and admin staff are trained to ensure that they can help you get to the right service and the right appointment with the most appropriate clinician.
So the next time you call for a GP appointment, these trained frontline staff will ask you what the problem is. This isn't to be nosy but it's so they can help get you to the right health professional within or outside the practice for your needs.
They also have a multitude of information and knowledge about services outside of the GP practice that can help too if you need that.

A number of patients have reported receiving calls from representatives of various companies. These callers (both by phone and in person), seem to know the patient’s medical history and sometimes say that this information has been obtained from the GP Practice.
No GP Practice will ever divulge your medical history.

What can be discussed using a telephone consultation?
GPs would normally discuss routine blood and hospital results, fit note renewals and medication reviews over the telephone. They are able to undertake some follow-up appointments by telephone and they also prescribe for conditions such as UTIs (where they do not need to examine you) over the telephone. The reception staff should be able to guide you as to when a telephone conversation is appropriate.
Named Accountable GP
The GP contract requires practices to allocate a named, Accountable GP for all patients (including children), who will take lead responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate servers required under the contract. Your record will be coded to identify your accountable GP.
If you are unsure who your accountable GP is, please ask at reception.
