Bath NHS Healthcare Centre is a GP-led healthcare centre open to patients on a 'walk-in' basis without an appointment, 365 days per year. We provide care for patients with minor injury or illness from 'Riverside Health Centre' on James Street West in Bath.
PLEASE NOTE ON WEDNESDAY 10TH APRIL WE WILL BE OPENING AT 9AM INSTEAD OF 8AM DUE TO ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE WORK.
We are generally quietest first thing in the morning, so we recommend you coming to us then. Please note that at times of extreme demand, we may need to close early; so please arrive well before our closing time, to avoid disappointment.
