What is the Healthy Together Clinic?
It’s a weekly drop-in clinic for patients with lower leg wounds, who may prefer coming to a more relaxed community/social setting, rather than going to the GP surgery.
The Healthy Together clinic was named by the people attending and is organised by GP surgeries with Bristol Community Health and Age UK Bristol. We encourage all those attending to take part in deciding how it’s run.
Following the advice of the Department of Health, Age UK Bristol has suspended all public drop-ins, face-to-face appointments, and clinics. Please visit our coronavirus advice page for further updates on our services. We will continue to support our existing clients during this time.
Who can attend?
The Healthy Together clinic is for patients who receive compression therapy for lower leg wounds from GP Surgeries in South Bristol. You will need to be a patient at one of the following and be referred by your Practice Nurse: Grange Road Surgery, Crest Family Practice.
In future, we hope to open up the clinic to patients with other healthcare needs too.
What are the benefits?
Research shows that patients who attend community clinics like these tend to see their wounds heal more quickly. The clinic is also a great opportunity to learn more about your condition and meet others with similar complaints. It's supportive, sociable and community-led.
The clinic takes place at the Withywood Centre, Queens Road, Bristol, BS13 8QA. It currently runs every Thursday morning.
You just need to be referred by your GP Nurse and then drop-in at any time during the session between 9:00-11:30. Refreshments are provided.
