They will not be read Monday-Friday between the hours of 1800 - 0900. Please contact 111 during out of hours or 999 if this is an emergency.


Making an appointment

To make an appointment by telephone, please ring our reception team on 01823 333355. Our receptionists are likely to ask the reason for your appointment – this is so that they can book the most appropriate appointment for you with the correct person.

You can contact the reception team to make an appointment Monday-Friday between 08:30-13:00 and 14:00-18:00. Our phone lines are very busy between 08:30 and 10:00 every morning; if your appointment is not urgent for that day, you may find it easier to get through to our reception team after 10am.

Appointments can be booked up to 6 weeks in advance, and we do have some appointments available on the same day for urgent issues.

We are available by telephone, for emergencies only, Monday-Friday between 08:00-08:30, 13:00-14:00 and 18:00-18:30.

We also offer appointments up until 20:00 every Tuesday evening and some Thursdays with our GPs, nurses and HCA. These surgeries are for pre-booked appointments only.

Please see our Home Page for information about the Improved Access Scheme. This is an initiative across Somerset where patients can make appointments at extended times (up until 8pm Monday-Friday and on Saturday mornings) at other practices across the local area.
