Local Services for our Local Community

At Winscombe and Banwell Family Practice we firmly believe in providing as many services as possible locally for the communities we serve. To this end we have been at the forefront of setting up new services for our patients previously only available in Hospital, as well as designing innovative ways of caring for the local community with advice from our Patient Support Group.

In addition we have encouraged partnership with other community health providers by providing space for them within our surgeries to enable a "One-stop shop" facility for our patients. This has also enhanced the co-ordination of communication and working relationships between these services including the District Nurses and Health Visitors and provided better care for our patients.

Since April 1997 Banwell Village Pharmacy, an independent chemist provided by Ms M Hook, has been attached to our Banwell Surgery providing an excellent and convenient facility for both our patients and other residents alike.

Over the years to accommodate all of these new clinics and services we have expanded both our Winscombe and Banwell sites significantly. 

Listed below are some of the services and clinics available from the practice to which we are always looking to add.
