Changes to opening times:

We are now working much more closely with nearby Buttercross Health Centre, in Somerton.  This means that registered patients at Ilchester Surgery may also be offered an appointment at Buttercross Health Centre and will also be able to access the additional clinics and services that are operated from Somerton. 

Buttercross Health Centre is open Monday - Friday between 8.00 am and 6.30 pm

Buttercross Health Centre is also part of Symphony Healthcare Services, which means that we can offer services for registered patients at both locations.

If you are a registered patient at Ilchester Surgery, but live in or around Somerton and would prefer to see a member of the healthcare team at Buttercross, please let our reception teams know when booking an appointment.  

If you need medical advice or treatment outside of opening hours, please call NHS 111, who will be able to advise you on the recommended action to take and an appointment if required.  For life threatening illnesses and medical emergencies call 999.
