Long Ashton Patients
Currently, Dr Grenfell-Shaw, Dr Kirby and Dr Burns are on long term sick leave and we do not know when they will return. We hope to be able to welcome them back when they are fully back to health.
We would however like to welcome our new GP's Dr Grant and Dr Merriel to the practice.

Under normal circumstances one of the four sites will be open on a Saturday or Sunday morning each weekend. As Tyntesfield Medical Group patients, if you require an appointment on a weekend, then you may be seen at whichever location is open that day. This includes both pre-bookable and available on the day appointments.
