Good news for patients.  

We are now offering extra pre-bookable evening appointments on Thursdays from the 1st November. There will be an extra 4 hours of appointment time available.

Both Ilchester Surgery and Buttercross Health Centre are closed on bank holidays. Call 111 for medical advice. Dial 999 if you have a medical emergency.

 

 

Improved GP Access – evening and weekend routine appointments

We are now working with a number of our neighbouring GP practices to offer improved access to GP appointments outside of the usual opening hours.  This means that there are additional routine appointments across south Somerset, between 18.30 and 20.00 Monday – Friday and on Saturday mornings.

To help patients access a GP more easily, we are able to book appointments in partnership with ten other local GP practices.  If you have a relevant medical concern and can’t attend an appointment during the usual clinic hours at the practice, you will be offered an alternative appointment at one of the following practices:

  • Abbey Manor Medical Practice
  • Buttercross Health Centre (provided at Yeovil Health Centre)
  • Crewkerne Health Centre
  • Hamdon Medical Centre
  • Martock Surgery & South Petherton Medical Centre
  • Oaklands Surgery
  • Penn Hill Surgery
  • Preston Grove Medical Centre
  • Ryalls Park Medical Centre
  • West Coker Surgery

You can make an appointment by ringing your registered practice as usual and the reception team will be able to advise you on which surgery and GP or health care professional are available for each appointment. Find out more by reading the  GP Access - FAQs

If you require urgent medical attention when the surgery is closed, please call NHS 111 for advice and access to the weekend Urgent Care Service and  out of Hours GP service. If you have a life threatening injury or illness you should attend A&E, or call 999 and ask for the ambulance service.
