The Surgery

Leap Valley Surgery serves the populations of Downend, Emersons Green, Yate and surrounding areas. The practice was first set up in 1955 and has two surgeries, the main surgery is at Beaufort Road in Downend and the branch surgery is at Abbotswood in Yate. Our team includes six GPs, two advanced nurse practitioners, two practice nurses, a treatment room nurse, health care assistant and phlebotomist as well as managers, secretarial, administrative and reception staff.

We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics for children, patients with long-term conditions and for patients needing minor surgery.

At Leap Valley Surgery we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. We feel it is important you know who you are speaking to, so our practice staff wear a name badge and identify themselves on the telephone.

We are a ‘training practice’. This means hospital doctors wanting to enter general practice spend time with us learning and gaining the experience they need to become family doctors.

Leap Valley Surgery was inspected by the Care Quality Commission on 19th May 2015 and our care has been rated as Good.  To see the full report click 'See the report' below.
