Beard Medical Practice offers a range of private GP and occupational health services, including driver, MCA coastguard (ENG1) and Oil and Gas (OGUK) medicals. GP and occupational appointments can be made quickly and easily, by clicking on the Beard Medical Practice online booking page.

The practice is run by two experienced private GPs and located in the Clifton area of Bristol. We are situated within the Litfield House Medical Centre, just a few minutes from Brunel's famous landmark, Clifton Suspension Bridge.

At the Beard Medical Practice, we pride ourselves on providing the highest standard of care. Our private GPs deliver similar services to your own surgery, but being a private GP practice, our standard appointments are twice as long as a standard NHS GP appointment.

We are fully registered and independently regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This means our private GP practice is assessed by exactly the same high standards expected of an NHS GP practice and NHS doctors. Our privacy policy may be viewed here: Privacy Statement

All of our doctors are registered with the General Medical Council, as well as being members of the Royal College of General Practitioners. This is the qualification awarded to GPs, when they have completed their GP training and passed the membership exams in general practice.
