Keynsham residents find out about health services at their fingertips

Residents were invited to a hands-on event hosted by healthcare provider Sirona and Community@67, Queens Road. Simon Knighton, chair of Sirona, Cllr Gill Hellier, and infection prevention nurse Denise Meyers

Visitors could try out a machine that shows how clean their hands were, with town council chairman Gill Hellier one of the first to have a go.

The event aimed to raise awareness of the range of services offered by Sirona, with demonstrations of healthy meals, and information from the Falls Clinic and Health Visiting Services.

It was an idea put forward by Sirona members Heather Thomas and Adrian Inker and could see similar events being held across the district.

Mr Inker  said: “We want people to understand the role of Sirona in the community and that it is here to work in partnership with them.”

Ms Thomas added: “Encouraging people to use the services that Sirona offers will help people live a more healthy lifestyle.”
