Global IT issue affecting the NHS update

EMIS are reporting that the service is restored across the NHS.

Whilst the systems are now back up and running, due to a backlog from Friday, we kindly ask for all non-urgent phone calls to be made later in the week to help us to focus on the backlog without overwhelming the system and staff.

For repeat prescriptions, we kindly ask you to use the NHS app as your first port of call.


We have a new temporary phone number due to the on-going issues where we are unable to hear patients – Please use 0117 203 4365

Welcome to Nightingale Valley Practice

11th April 2024

A message to my colleagues and patients of Nightingale Valley Practice


Dear All,

For those of you who have not yet heard I am retiring from NVP, with my last clinical partner working day at the Brooklea health centre being April 18th 2024.

Over the last twenty-seven years, room 7 has seen its fair share of tensions and tears, but many more smiles and laughs. Thank you for the chats, the help and advice from so many of you and for allowing me into so many of your lives. From my first day here, this “blow in from Ireland” has been made to feel welcome and at home. I, along with Sharon and the family still feel so very lucky that we found and settled here, worked in and lived near this very special part of fabulous Bristol.

I have seen some of you grow. Those of you who were here on day one, we have aged and lived together. Others have joined along the way, and more have moved on and are remembered to this day.

To you all, my enormous gratitude.
It has been an honour.

Dr Brian Hanratty
