Welcome to Ilchester Surgery website  

We are now offering additional healthcare services to Ilchester Surgery patients by combining our services with Buttercross Health Centre.  Find out more about the changes to opening hours and how to access new services by reading our leaflet: Joint Services at Buttercross and Ilchester.  

From the 31st January 2018 we will be launching a new joint website that will replace the existing separate Ilchester Surgery and Buttercross Health Centre websites, where you will be able to find out information on services at both practices. 

Recent Changes

There have been a number of changes at Ilchester Surgery recently as we have been joining services together with Buttercross Health Centre to ensure that we can continue to provide healthcare services in both Ilchester and Somerton.  We would like to thank all our patients and the local community for your support and patience.  Please bear with us whilst we work to improve the phone and appointment systems over the coming weeks.
