Improving Access Pilot
Frome Valley Medical Centre is currently taking part in a pilot scheme where groups of practices are working together to offer more appointments in the evenings and at weekends. Until the end of September 2017, we are able to offer you GP and nurse appointments at the Concord Medical Centre in Little Stoke, Bristol during some weekday evenings and on Saturdays, in addition to appointments at Frome Valley.
In addition, during February & March 2017, we are also working with West Walk, Courtside and Wellington Road practices in Yate to provide some additional evening appointments for our patient populations. As part of this initiative, Frome Valley is providing appointments between 6:30 and 8:00pm on either Tuesdays or Wednesdays.

Improving Access Pilot
Please be aware that any clinician seeing you at one of these other practices will have access to your notes, to allow a full and effective consultation. However, this does mean that if you have opted out of data sharing, you will not be able to be seen at another practice.
Online Patient Access
Did you know that you can order prescriptions and make appointments online?
Just ask at Reception if you would like to be set up to do this, bringing photo ID (e.g. passport or driving licences) and proof of address from the last 3 months. The process is quick and easy, allowing you to make repeat prescription requests and appointments even when the surgery is closed.
