Somerset has been chosen by NHS England to introduce a new scheme that will allow you to make an appointment to see a health professional in a GP practice outside the usual working hours of GP surgeries. The scheme works by getting a group of GP practices together so that they can open up in turn at the new times.
If you cannot access an appointment at your own surgery it is now possible to access available appointments at other surgeries in your area. Our practice provides evening appointments every Friday evening but if one of these appointments does not suit your needs then please speak to reception. We can help arrange an appointment at one of the other practices on an evening that we do not provide appointments on or on a Saturday morning when we are closed. Please contact the practice during normal working hours and we will be able to advise on where an appointment will be available. (Please be aware that clinicians at other practices will need consent to view you medical record should you have an appointment at another practice).
