Welcome to Southmead & Henbury Family Practice
The Team here at Southmead & Henbury Family Practice are dedicated to providing our patients with the best possible health care. As a team we aim to be compassionate, courteous and respectful at all times with a focus on enabling patients to be fully involved in their own care and treatment.
We offer personal General Practitioner and Family Medical Services. We are a long-established training Practice with around 11,400 patients, practising from two sites. Approximately two thirds of patients are registered at Southmead Health Centre, a modernised NHS-owned building which is also home to several other NHS services. Willow Tree Surgery is a Practice owned site in Henbury where one third of patients are registered and there is an independent pharmacy on site.
Southmead has developed its own Community Plan which has attracted funding from a range of sources, and we have excellent links with the Southmead Development Trust, based at the nearby Greenway Centre.
When booking an appointment you will be asked for a description of your problem. We ask for this information so that we can be sure to find you an appointment with the most appropriate person. Please read our details on how we handle your information.
