Appointment System

When you call for a doctor’s appointment, you will be asked whether your need is:

URGENT, ACUTE OR ROUTINE

In order to help categorise your appointment, and ensure you see the most appropriate person, the receptionist may ask you if you can share the nature of the problem or issue. Please be assured that this information will be treated confidentially.

Named GP   

If you would like to know who your named Doctor is please ask reception when you next visit the surgery.

Friends and Family Test

The Friends and Family test has recently been added to our website. it is your chance to provide feedback on your experience of the surgery.

Patient Group Meeting

Everyone welcome to join us! We look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions. Please contact reception to find out how to participate.


Repeat Prescriptions

You can now order your repeat prescriptions through the online Prescriptions link. If you wish to register to do so please complete the patient online registration form and bring it along to reception with two forms of ID, one photographic and one proof of address so we can give you the registration information. If you are already registered to use online appointments you do not need to register again.

Gentle Exercises Classes

In association with Age UK, the Health Centre hosts Gentle Exercise Classes on Wed lunchtime 1.30-2.30 pm.  No need to book. Just turn up in comfortable clothing by 1.25 pm.

Practice Training Sessions

The practice is closed on the first Thursday of each month from 13:00 to 16:30 for staff training. Your doctors and the practice team need to keep up to date with the latest treatments and techniques. To do that they have to undergo continuous professional development and training. This is to benefit our patients and is compulsory for staff to retain their professional registration 

Like most other practices in Somerset, we have decided the best way to do this is to close the practice for half a day each month so that all staff can be trained together. This has been proven to be the most effective way of undertaking such training.

We recognize this could cause inconvenience to some patients so arrangements have been made to ensure all urgent and emergency cases are dealt with effectively.

Please telephone 01823 490505 and a recorded message will explain how to access help or advice.
