Community Clinics for Lower Leg Wounds at The Withywood Centre

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.

Mental Wellbeing

The surgery can offer patients experiencing depression, low mood or anxiety the opportunity to have an extended appointment with a mental health nurse specialist.

Our specialist nurse works Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

To be referred in to this service you must speak to your usual GP first.
