From 1 April 2023, NHS Gloucestershire is responsible for commissioning (planning and buying) primary medical (GP), community pharmacy, optometry (eye) and dental services, in addition to medical (GP) services.

These services have previously been managed by NHS England South West. However, managing these services locally from April will allow the NHS in Gloucestershire and our One Gloucestershire partners to consider how we can best serve our local population, leading to better access, outcomes and experiences for patients and valuing and making best use of the expertise of healthcare professionals.

You can find information on GP surgery, pharmacy, optician and dental services using the service finder.

If you’re ill or injured and need advice or care, find out more about when a pharmacy or GP practice may be able to help you here.
