Welcome to Wellspring Surgery
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Try our new service - consult our Doctors online. It's simple, confidential, and quick.  Send us details about your condition.  A doctor decides on the best treatment for you.  We ring you back with advice, a prescription or an appointment. Please do NOT use this for urgent enquiries - phone the surgery or dial 111 instead.

Wellspring Surgery has a long history of teaching and training undergraduate medical students and postgraduate doctors. We have taught Bristol University medical students for at least 20 years and have been a "Core Teaching practice" for 3 years now, which means we teach students across the whole 5 years of the Bristol medical School, with all GPs and nurses participating in this. Dr Klinkenberg and Dr Jahfar are GP Trainers, supervising qualified doctors during their 3 year General practice Specialist Training.
We could not do any of this without the fantastic support of the patients at Wellspring. Although we know that teaching raises standards generally and is good for the Surgery, we are constantly amazed by how helpful patients are towards our students and junior doctors and appreciate this greatly. You are helping to create the doctors of the future and they learn so much from you.
There will be students and junior doctors at various levels of training present for much of the year at Wellspring. We always do our best to notify patients of this and are very happy to ask a student to leave the consultation if patients would rather they are not present.
Wellspring Surgery works closely with Bristol University and other research groups to improve clinical care in the UK. We participate in numerous trials each year that seek to improve patient experience and outcomes. We will occasionally ask patients if they would like to participate in a particular trial. Participation is always voluntary, and it is absolutely fine to say 'no' if you would rather not take part.
