We have now joined services together between Buttercross Health Centre and Ilchester Surgery, enabling teams to work across both locations to provide healthcare services to patients who are registered at both practices.
Both practices are part of Symphony Healthcare Services, a larger NHS healthcare organisation. This means that we can offer services for our patients in the local area, across both sites, to help improve flexibility and services.
You can choose to register at either practice and use our joint switchboard to book appointments at either location, by calling 01458 272473 or 01935 840207
If you have any questions or need advice on how to register, please call the practice.
Re-registration is normally required if the new address is beyond a reasonable distance for the doctors or nurses to make visits should this be necessary.
Applications for new registrations are given individual consideration by the practice and a written explanation provided if the practice is unable to accept an application.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
