BrisDoc's Community Fund have just approved further financial support to Wellspring to enable them to open the ground floor of the new Health Clinic and move from the current location. The current facilities that the team are working in are very cramped with just two consulting rooms (without wash basins), a corridor which doubles as a treatment room and a small bedded area at the rear of the building.

Team Belinda: Danielle Townsend, Liz Turner, Jess Turner and Phil Clarke are running in memory of Belinda Clarke who passed away in February this year after sadly losing her battle to cancer. We are a team of family and close friends of Belinda who enjoy running, like Belinda did too and couldn’t think of a better way to raise some money for charity.
Members of staff from across all our services come together this month to discuss all things healthcare, health & wellbeing and how we can make BrisDoc a fantastic place to work.

Last month, Dr Kimberly Bruce (GP at Northville Family Practice) and BrisDoc's Community Fund organised a screening of the documentary film, Embrace, which follows body image activist Taryn Brumfitt's crusade as she explores the global issue of body loathing, inspiring us to change the way we feel about ourselves and think about our bodies.
