Extended Hours Services

 

Our “Extended hours” surgeries have generally been well used.  In addition to normal surgery hours we open once a week either on a Saturday morning or a weekday evening. These clinics are intended for people who cannot get to the surgery easily during normal office hours owing to work commitments.  We request that patients respect this so that those who most need the service are able to take advantage of it.

 

These clinics do NOT provide emergency medical cover, as the appointments are booked for routine patients only.  Out of Hours medical cover is provided in the usual way by Bath Emergency Services (BEMS) at the Riverside Health Centre in Bath.
