Citizens Advice Bristol has been piloting a new Saturday advice service in collaboration local GP surgeries in inner and East Bristol. The service has been running since January and patients registered at participating surgeries can book a Saturday morning appointment with an adviser at the surgery. Advice sessions are held at East Trees, Fireclay, Charlotte Keel, Old School and Air Balloon surgeries. However, your surgery may be able to refer you.
Many people struggle to access our drop-in service for any number of reasons such as difficulty getting into the town centre, work or caring commitments or being anxious in unfamiliar environments. These things can act as barriers to accessing advice so this project will go along way towards widening access by making advice available to people in an environment that is safe, familiar and local to them.
Please contact your surgery for more details.
