We are experiencing some issues with our new phone system this morning - please bear with us whilst this is being sorted by the engineers.

The telephone number for the reporting abuse of adults in Changing to 0300 247 0201. ( posted on Jan 16, 2019 )

If you are concerned that someone is at risk of being abused, please call the Virgin Care Adult Safeguarding Team’s new number 0300 247 0201. If anyone is in immediate danger, always call 999 and ask for the Police.


There are many different types of abuse and it can take place anywhere at any time. People can be at risk of harm or abuse if they need care and support. This includes people with a physical disability or illness, people who are elderly or frail or have sensory loss, or people living with dementia, a learning disability or a mental health need.

Abuse can be deliberate, or it can be the result of ignorance, or lack of training, knowledge or understanding. Sometimes if a person is being abused in one way they are also being abused in other ways.

Abuse may be physical, sexual or emotional. It could also be financial – you may know someone who is being put under pressure to change their will or to give money or property away. If someone is being discriminated against because of their race, sexuality or disability – that is also a form of abuse.

Domestic abuse is any kind of abuse that happens between people with an intimate or family relationship.

If someone is experiencing disrespect or ill treatment in an institution like a care home, nursing home, sheltered housing, acute hospital or in-patient setting, we call it ‘organisational abuse.’

You may know someone who is being neglected. Perhaps their medical or physical needs are being ignored. Or someone you know may be neglecting themselves.

Call the Virgin Care Adult Safeguarding Team on the local rate number 0300 247 0201 where you will be connected to the local B&NES team.

Planning Approved ( posted on Aug 24, 2018 )

Hope House Partners and Staff are delighted to have received notification of full planning consent from Bath & North East Somerset Council this week for our Health and Community Centre, which will be located on Waterloo Road in Radstock. 


Stephanie Coombs (Practice Manager at Hope House Surgery)  responded to the announcement  ‘We are excited to work with our partners on this project, which will allow us to continue to provide general practice services to the growing local population and to develop further enhanced services for our community. Collectively, we recognise that a holistic approach to health care and social wellbeing can deliver significant benefits to our population and the new Health and Community Centre will provide the facilities required to make this a reality for Radstock.’


The new purpose-built, modern health care facility will continue to offer the full range of services already provided by Hope House Surgery, with the intention of being able to offer additional services that patients currently need to travel to Paulton or the RUH to access. It will allow for the predicted  population growth and ensure that a GP surgery remains within the town centre.


Bath & North East Somerset Council is joining Hope House Surgery in this project, and the Children’s Centre and Library will also relocate to the new facilities. This will ensure that these services remain in Radstock, keeping them easily accessible for residents.


Cllr Vic Pritchard (Conservative, Chew Valley North), Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Cabinet Member for Health & Wellbeing, said: “We’re pleased to be part of an exciting and innovative local project and we welcome the support from external funding to help deliver much-needed local facilities. The children’s centre and library, together with the other health facilities under one roof, offers an excellent opportunity to integrate services. It also enables all the services to be modernised and fits well with our modern libraries approach.”


Westfield and Radstock Big Local also intend to run a community kitchen at the heart of the Centre, which will provide education around preparing and cooking healthy and nutritious meals on a budget.  This scheme is driven by local health and lifestyle concerns highlighted by doctors at Hope House.


We will continue to work closely with Bath and North East Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group, NHS England, Bath & North East Somerset Council and Westfield and Radstock Big Local to ensure that the development and building work now progress efficiently. The team at Hope House Surgery, along with the support over the past 4 years from the specialist health team at GVA and other stakeholders remain committed to our objective to provide sustainable health and community facilities in the centre of Radstock for generations to come.

Annual Health Check Changes ( posted on Jun 13, 2018 )

Change to appointment system for annual health checks for chronic disease management

The appointment system for patients who receive regular health checks is changing.

We are changing our review dates into the month of your birthday and this review may be sooner or later than you had previously expected.  In future years we would like you to remember that you will be due a review in the month of your birthday and you should phone the surgery in that month to arrange a suitable date and not wait for an invitation.  It is important to have up to date checks carried out to ensure that we can discuss the results and any changes that may be required to your care.


Within the next 3 months please look out for publicity by poster, email, sms and website, which will inform patients when the new service is up and running and a reminder to book in the month of your birthday.


Please contact Bonita Burrow via Hope House email  BSCCG.hopehouse@nhs.net with any queries.

How we will use your information?

Your data is collected for the purpose of providing direct patient care; however, we can disclose this information if it is required by law, if you give consent or if it is justified in the public interest. The practice may be requested to support research; however, we will always gain your consent before sharing your information with medical research databases such as the Clinical Practice Research Datalink and QResearch or others when the law allows.


In order to comply with its legal obligations, this practice may send data to NHS Digital when directed by the Secretary of State for Health under the Health and Social Care Act 2012. Additionally, this practice contributes to national clinical audits and will send the data that is required by NHS Digital when the law allows.

Summary Care Record (SCR)

The NHS in England uses a national electronic record called the Summary Care Record (SCR) to support patient care.   It contains key information from your GP record.  Your SCR provides authorised healthcare staff with faster, secure access to essential information about you in an emergency or when you need unplanned care, where such information would otherwise be unavailable.


Summary Care Records are there to improve the safety and quality of your care.  SCR core information comprises your allergies, adverse reactions and medications. An SCR with additional information can also include reason for medication, vaccinations, significant diagnoses / problems, significant procedures, anticipatory care information and end of life care information.   Additional information can only be added to your SCR with your agreement. 


Please be aware that if you choose to opt-out of SCR, NHS healthcare staff caring for you outside of this surgery may not be aware of your current medications, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had, in order to treat you safely in an emergency. Your records will stay as they are now with information being shared by letter, email, fax or phone.

If you wish to opt-out of having an SCR please return a completed opt-out form to the practice

Plans unveiled for new GP surgery and library in Radstock ( posted on Feb 13, 2017 )

Designs for a new health and community development on Waterloo Road in Radstock will be unveiled at a public exhibition on 2nd March 2017.


The new centre is set to include a GP surgery, pharmacy, library, health visitors, children’s centre and community kitchen.


The innovative project is being led by Hope House Surgery and Bath & North East Somerset Council to provide a more joined up service for the residents of Radstock and the surrounding area. 


Big Local Radstock and Westfield will also provide space within the building for local community groups and services to help people improve their health and wellbeing.


A planning application is due to be submitted to the Council by the end of March and it is hoped that building work can begin before the end of the year.


Funding for the project has been secured from NHS England in response to a funding request by Bath and North East Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group. Additional funding is being provided from the Council’s capital programme and Big Local.


Dr Alison Humphrey, a GP Partner at Hope House Surgery, said:


“Our patients are always asking us when the practice will be moving to new premises so I’m sure they will share our excitement about this new facility for Radstock.


Working with the Council and Big Local means we can bring a wide range of public services all together in the centre of Radstock. It will be much easier for local people to access all the services that can help them to manage their health better and it will help us to tackle some of the health inequalities in our community.”


Cllr Vic Pritchard (Conservative, Chew Valley North), Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Cabinet Member for Health & Wellbeing, said:


“This is an exciting and innovative local project and we welcome the support from external funding to help deliver much-needed local facilities.


The children’s centre and library, together with the other health facilities under one roof, offers an excellent opportunity to integrate services. It also enables all the services to be modernised and fits well with our modern libraries approach.”


Robin Moss, Chair of Radstock & Westfield Big Local, said:


“It's very good news that there will be a new health centre – offering much-needed investment in a growing community. I'm pleased that the team at Hope House Surgery are looking at how they can encourage healthy living as part of their plans. Big Local look forward to working with them on their exciting and innovative ideas.



Radstock and Westfield Big Local have identified a clear need for a proactive and positive focus on good health and wellbeing for all in our community. By working together with stakeholders we believe that the proposed community space and kitchen will quickly become a hub that local people can be a part of and shape the services they want. Together we can make the most of this amazing opportunity.”


Simon Allen, a member of the Patient Participation Group at Hope House Surgery said:


"This is fantastic news for Radstock and our villages. From Clandown to Tyning, from Haydon to Writhlington, we've all known for some time that the current surgery is no longer suitable to meet the needs of our community. The new health centre will be able to offer us so much more and the sooner we get on with it the better.”



The public exhibition will take place from 4pm to 7.30pm on 2nd March 2017 at Radstock Library, The Street, Radstock, BA3 3PR.

Surgery Update ( posted on Jan 28, 2016 )

Hope House Surgery is looking to move to new purpose-built premises so we can continue to provide the same high standard of care and treatment to the local community as it grows and flourishes.

We are now in discussions with NHS England and Bath and North East Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group about new premises for the surgery.  Our intention is to provide modern facilities whilst remaining situated in Radstock town centre.  We appreciate that the current parking situation has been difficult for many of you and would like to reassure you that we are considering parking and access as part of any potential new development.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and will keep you informed of progress and how you can get involved in future building plans.

Missed Appointments ( posted on Dec 7, 2015 )

Missed Appointments and DNA's

Do you feel frustrated when you cannot get an appointment?

In September 2016 we recorded 150 missed appointments; a combination or GP, Nurse and Treatment Room appointments. This means the patient did not turn up for the appointment and did not contact the surgery in advance to cancel or change the appointment. This resulted in approximately 24hours of wasted clinical time! 

Breakdown of missed appointments:

77 GP appointments – this is equivalent to over 5 sessions (2 ½  days)

17 Nurse appointments – these could have been used for dressings, injections, smear tests etc.

56 Treatment Room appointments – We could have taken an additional 112 blood tests in this time.


The effect of this is:

  • An increase in waiting time for appointments
  • Frustration for both staff and patients
  • A waste of NHS resources
  • A potential risk to the health of patients

Non-attendance is a major issue for the NHS, increasing waiting list times and costs. Missed appointments can also increase inappropriate and unnecessary A&E attendances.

We appreciate there can be many reasons why patient fail to attend appointments - they feel better, they are scared, transport problems or they simply forget.

However, as we enter the busiest time of the year for GP surgeries and with demand for appointments at an all-time high, we would like to ask if you could please telephone to cancel your appointment if you are unable or no longer need to attend. This will then enable us to offer this appointment to another patient.

We would like to know how satisified you are with your visit to the surgery. There is now a small touch-screen device in the reception area for you to leave feedback after each visit. It is simple to use and will only take a couple of minutes to answer the questions. Please take the time to fill it in so we can look at what we can do to improve our service. Thank you!

Important Information for Patient - Changes to the way we use your data ( posted on Oct 15, 2013 )

Changes to the way we use your data

The NHS is changing and services are being restructured.  These reforms will impact upon the way that clinical data is collected, shared and analysed.  Under the powers of the Health & Social Care Act 2012, the Health and Social Care Information Centre can, under certain circumstances, require personal confidential data from GP practices without seeking patient consent.


The NHS has announced that its data collection service, Care.data, will be extracting data from patients medical records held on GP clinical systems from the middle of December 2013.  This information will be used to help plan and improve healthcare by designing integrated services for patients.  In the future, certain approved researchers may also benefit. The BMA supports this change as it more timely and accurate data will help to improve the quality of care delivered to patients across all sectors of the NHS. 


The dataset to be extracted from GP systems includes personal confidential data such as referrals, all NHS prescriptions and other clinical data.  Identifiers such as Date of Birth, postcode, NHS number and gender are required to link GP data with that from other care settings such as hospitals, in order to analyse care across pathways.  Free text will not be extracted and neither will your name or full address.  Once extracted, the will be stored in a secure environment where it can be linked with other health information to help plan NHS services or medical research in a way that does not identify you.


You have a choice.  If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not need to do anything.  If you have concerns or wish to prevent this happening then please speak to a member of the practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet “How information about you helps us provide better care”.  More information can be found at www.nhs.uk/caredata .  If you wish to prevent this happening you have a right to opt out.  To do this please collect an Opt-Out form from either reception or download one here - Care.data Opt-out Form.  You can also find additional information  including copies of leaflets explaining more about why this is happening in the 'Information for Patients' section on the left hand side. 


We are required to inform you of this change as we are responsible for the protection of your personal clinical data however, in these circumstances, we are obliged to comply with this change in the law.

Our Triage System ( posted on Mar 8, 2013 )

To improve our appointment service for our patients and ensure that you get an appropriate appointment we introduced a triage system in September 2013. We are very pleased with how this is working for patients and our team of receptionists, doctors and nurses.


Here is a reminder of how it works…...

All patients asking to be seen that day receive a phone call that morning from one of our trained triage nurses. They endeavour to sort out your concerns on the phone and if necessary arrange an appropriate appointment with a nurse or a doctor.


What Should Patients Do?

If you feel you have an urgent health problem that needs to be dealt with on that day please ring the appointments line 01761 432121 ( OPTION ONE ) – as early as possible please. Our receptionist will take your contact number and if possible brief details of the problem. Our triage nurse will then ring you back.


The telephone triage system is for all same day appointment requests. Therefore any patient coming in to the surgery to make an appointment for that day will also be asked for a contact number and our triage nurse will ring them as above. Thank you.
