Update to our patients on the new healthcare centre at Weston Rugby Club
Development of the new healthcare centre at the Weston Rugby Club site presents us with an exciting opportunity to ensure we can provide high quality, modern GP services that meet the needs of our population into the future.
Pier Health Group along with Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), community services provider Sirona care & health and other key stakeholders have been working through a selection of shortlisted sites for a new healthcare centre for Graham Road patients. The new development at Weston Rugby Club was selected as our preferred option.
The Rugby Club site was chosen because it scored significantly higher than other site options overall, including on elements of accessibility criteria such as access to the building, disabled access and parking. In addition to parking, there is plenty of green space and room for new and additional services.
We are planning to have a public consultation this summer on the proposal to close Graham Road Surgery and relocate all of our patients to the new healthcare centre.
We will update you further on this in the coming weeks and let you know how you can get involved. Your views are important to us and we hope you will take the opportunity to share them and help shape the new healthcare centre.
Our Chairman, Dr John Heather along with the CCG will be updating North Somerset Council’s Health Overview and Scrutiny Panel (HOSP) this Thursday (18 March) on the plans to develop a health centre at Weston Rugby Club.
A link to the papers is available on the Council’s website.

Workshops on the proposed Graham Road Surgery relocation
we are running a series of online workshops for patients and local residents to get involved in the design and development of services as part of the proposed relocation of Graham Road Surgery to the new practice at the Weston Rugby Club site.
The workshops taking place are as follows:
The first workshop will focus on transport and accessibility, looking at any issues regarding travel to the new location and how we can support people with these.
The design, look and feel workshop will look at how the internal and external design of the new facility can be influenced, including the layout of patient areas. This will include for example design of a child friendly space, the colour scheme and other design factors, as well as a suggested name for the new facility.
The third workshop will consider the use of the sporting facilities and recreational space at the Rugby Club site to further enhance health and well-being opportunities.
The fourth workshop will look at how primary care services may operate at the new facility and how we can better ‘join up’ health and social care services.
The final workshop on Wednesday 12 May is designed to summarise all four previous workshops and capture any further comments from people who may not have been able to attend the previous events.
The workshops will all take place via Zoom and details will be sent to everyone who signs up.
Feedback from the workshops will be used to inform the public consultation, which will start this summer (2021), on the proposal to close Graham Road Surgery and relocate patients to the new healthcare centre.
We are currently experiencing exceptionally high volumes of calls, many in relation to covid vaccines. If you have a query regarding Covid or you require more information, please visit our website below in the first instance https://www.pierhealthcovidvaccination.info/
We understand that many patients have received letters from NHS England inviting you to book on line. There is currently a mass vaccination site in Bristol, however this site does not yet have the full capacity to cope with all. We have a site in Weston and are currently inviting patients to that site. Please wait to be contacted by us to arrange a date. We are expecting deliveries of both vaccines in the coming days and will have enough for the Weston population.
If your call is not urgent please keep the lines free as the large volumes of calls is causing problems. If you need assistance and have access to the internet please click HERE for askmygp.
When the surgery is closed and you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency, call 111.
