Asthma reviews are available at various times throughout the week with our clinical pharmacist, Clare Cannon. Your asthma review can be carried out face to face or over the telephone.
A smear test is a 20 minute appointment and can be made at any time throughout the week. Smear tests can be booked with our practice nurses Olena Rudyuk or Ruth Shurley, or one of our GP's Dr Shackleton or Dr Khin.

To do this, please visit the NHS Somerset Website by clicking the following link: NHS Somerset Maternity Self Referral Form. You need to fill out the online Maternity Booking Form and the maternity department will then contact you to arrange your first midwife appointment at the surgery.
