Below is a list of the services which we offer or you can visit http://www.4ypbristol.co.uk/ for information about other local services.

  • Teen Health Check
  • Chlamydia Testing
  • Sexual Health

  • C-card scheme registration and pick-up point (free condoms) 
  • Asthma Reviews
  • General Health Advice
  • Support to Stop Smoking

  • Drug or alcohol worries

We are also happy to discuss anything about your general health – for example:

  • If you are feeling ‘down’

Please be aware that any pharmacy displaying the 4YP logo will offer emergency contraception, chlamydia testing and free condoms to under 24s.

Will you tell anyone about my visit

You can see a doctor or nurse alone even if you are under 16. You can be sure that anything you discuss with any member of this practice – doctor, nurse or receptionist – will stay confidential. Even if you are under 16, nothing will be aid to anyone – including parents, other family members, care workers or tutors – without your permission. The only reason why we might consider passing on confidential information without your permission, would be to protect you from serious harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.

Can I be seen alone?

We are happy to see you, or talk to you on the phone, alone even if you are under 16. You can bring a friend or relative if you want to. We have female and male doctors and nurses available for appointments most days.

How do I make an appointment?

You can call us on to make an appointment – see our opening times. Also, you can just turn up and ask for a 4YP appointment. For 4YP appointments, it doesn’t matter if we are not your usual surgery.

How to get here

Buses - Buses 73, 75 and 76 stop on the Gloucester Road, a few minutes walk from the surgery.

Car Park - The medical Centre has its own car park.  Access is on Church Road, behind the Shell petrol garage on Gloucester Road.  We have marked disabled bays.
