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.
Chronic Disease Management Clinics
In order to make sure you keep as well as possible and that the management of your chronic medical conditions is best tailored to your needs, the nurses run several chronic disease clinics;
- Coronary heart Disease
- Stop smoking clinic
These take place on Monday and Thursday afternoons at Keynsham (parents are sent appointments from Child Health in Bath).
You’ll need to see your own doctor to confirm your pregnancy, and then you’ll be given a pregnancy pack and asked to make a booking appointment with the midwife. Your own doctor and the community midwife will look after you during your pregnancy. Post natal and baby checks are carried out in routine doctor’s appointments and will be arranged for you.
Minor operations are carried out by all of the doctors except Dr Rose. See your own doctor and if you need an operation a special appointment will be arranged.
Clinic For Drug Users
We run a clinic with workers from the Bath Alcohol Drug Advisory service (BADAS). We offer advice, infectious disease testing and immunisation, replacement therapy for heroin users. To get an appointment you’ll need to be referred by your own doctor.
