Clevedon Medical Centre was opened in 1971 and is centrally located in the town centre, directly opposite Clevedon Cottage Hospital.
In April 2015 it merged the two existing Green and Riverside partnerships into one central practice and became Clevedon Medical Centre.
The medical centre is well equipped for modern general practice with a full range of primary health facilities to be able to look after its 17,000 patients.
There are health visitors, district nurses, midwives, psychology and counselling services all on site.There is a well equipped treatment room and a staffed reception area. All the GP principals and the registrars have their own consulting rooms.
The Out of Hours cover (6.30pm till 8.00am) is provided by an organisation contracted to provide out of hours GP cover by our local Primary Care Trust.
Clevedon Medical Centre is computerised using an EMIS system and there are PC's in all surgeries and in the treatment room and reception area. The Medical centre has a separate terminal link to Southmead Hospital to access all pathology results.
We co-operate and communicate efficiently between the partnerships to ease the smooth running of the Practices.
