Volunteer Driver Scheme

Greenway Community Practice is starting a Volunteer Driver scheme


If you want to help older and vulnerable people get to their hospital & health care appointments, day care centres, social events and respite centres and make a difference to their lives then get join RSVP West’s Bristol based driving scheme. Together we can assist with helping older people maintain their health, independence and reduce social isolation.

Dr Gillvray Is Leaving

A note from Dr Gillvray to all her Patients,

“It makes me very sad to say that I am leaving Greenway Community Practice at Easter time.  My last surgery will be 29th March 2018.

I have been at the practice 4 years now and have developed great relationships with my patients and all the staff here.

It has been an emotional decision but my husband has accepted a job in Cambridge and the family are relocating. My hope is that I can spend more time with my young family so I am not rushing into another practice.

I am aware that Greenway will be a very hard act to follow. The Practice thoroughly deserves all its awards especially in the current NHS climate.  I will be keeping in touch with the Practice and following its news closely.


I will miss everyone and I am sure you will make my replacement Dr Mark Statter very welcome.  Some of you may recognise him as he has previously covered my maternity leave here at the practice.  He is looking forward to joining the team and becoming your usual GP”


We are anticipating difficult weather over the next few days. Please note the practice will do its very best to remain as open as possible during this time

Drs Cross/ Halsey/ Collenette/  Cleverely/ Hay all live locally and so will be at the surgery. Dr Grimshaw is on leave tomorrow. Dr Gilvray has to commute from South Bristol so she will make the decision whether she can attend by 8am on Friday morning. Our treatment room may suffer a bit as one of our nurses has to travel quite some distance. Once again we will do our best to keep your appointment. In the event of problems with your appointment we will ring you. Please cancel the appointment if you plan not to attend and we will do our best to rebook you as soon as possible

However it would be very helpful if you could try and manage your illness with the support of your family and local pharmacy without contacting the surgery as we are anticipating a difficult day. NHS 111 and A&E will have similar difficulties to ours so please think about how you use these services too

Thank you for your support

Dr James Cross

Senior Parnter
