Extended Hours

We now provide additional appointments on a Monday evening ( 6pm-8.15pm ) and on Saturday mornings ( 8am-11.15am ). These are aimed for people who find it difficult to attend appointments during normal working hours. There are pre-booked appointments only during these times and there is NO WALK-IN or EMERGENCY SERVICE. If you need urgent medical advice or help at these times, please telephone the Out of hours service on 111 Please note there are Accident & Emergency Departments in both Bristol and Bath.

 

Stop Smoking Clinic

We provide a very successful stop smoking clinic at Keynsham surgery, once a week on Wednesdays afternoons between 2-4pm.

 

Treatment Room

Appointments are available at both surgeries for dressings, investigations, injections, vaccinations, cervical smears and removal of stitches.

 

Senior Nurse Clinics

At Keynsham, Senior Nurses Karen Kocinski and Angela Harris have their own surgeries. They have been trained to assess your condition and can provide treatment in the same way as a GP. You will often have to wait less time to see them than to see a GP. They work closely with the doctors, so even if they are unable to treat you themselves, they can easily arrange for a doctor to see you.

 

Travel Clinics

We run a travel clinic which gives you advice on which immunisations you may need when travelling abroad. Before attending the clinic it is worth checking the following website (www.fitfortravel.scot.nhs.uk)to see if any immunisations are recommended

We are also a registered yellow fever centre and offer yellow fever immunisations. For private charges please click here.                

Please make sure that you get an appointment at least 3-4 months before you travel. There is a charge for some travel vaccinations.

Regarding malaria prophylaxis please click here for more information.
