We are very excited that the SWIFT PCN COVID vaccination site will go live in the Knowle West Health Living Centre from Friday 15th January 2021
We know patients are very keen to get their jab but please wait until you are invited to book an appointment by your practice
Please do not phone your practice or come to the Healthy Living Centre as this will delay our booking process – we will be working very hard to get all our patients aged 80 or over jabbed next week!
Thank you to all the SWIFT practices, the Healthy Living Centre , the CSU IT department and NHS property services who have all worked so well together to get the site up and running in such a short time.
If you have a positive COVID test and are struggling with your symptoms, please use the leaflet below for advice on what actions to take:

In the treatment rooms our team of nurses, health care assistants and phlebotomists provide a range of services for minor injuries, wound care, immunisations, blood tests, health check, blood pressure testing, cervical smears, ear syringing and travel clinics.
The nursing team also hold regular specialist clinics offering monitoring, support and advice in the following areas:
A weekly community clinic has been set up at the Withywood Centre for people with lower leg wounds. During the clinics, patients can receive compression therapy or other lower leg treatments, with support from our friendly nurses and volunteers, whilst enjoying a cup of tea and socialising with other people experiencing the same condition. To support the initiative, Bristol Ageing Better has commissioned Age UK Bristol to provide volunteer support and to arrange patient transport.
Patients can attend the clinic instead of their usual weekly appointment at the GP surgery. The clinic is being piloted for 12 months, beginningvApril 2017. It is organised by South Bristol Primary Care Collaborative and supported by Bristol Ageing Better.
The clinics take place every Thursday morning from 09.30am in the Withywood Centre, with more to follow in Knowle at a later date. If you are interested in attending, please contact your GP practice nursing team to find out more.
Services that are accessible through the surgery include:
If you are travelling abroad you will need to read the information contained in the following link before booking an appointment with the nurse. If you contact the surgery to book an appointment the receptionist will ask if you have read the information, which country you are visiting and what vaccinations you require.
Below is a list of vaccinations and how long they will protect you for:
Hepatitis A - 1 dose will cover you for up to 1 year. If you receive a second dose within 6-12 months of your originally vaccination this will then protect you for 25 years.
Typhoid - 3 years
Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio - 10 years
For information on foreign travel click here.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
We are unable to vaccinate against Yellow Fever. This vaccine can be obtained from foreign travel clinics.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
