Noticeboard

We are aware with an issue with Patient Access (online prescription ordering)- the system has been updated and the new update has added a screen asking patients to nominate their pharmacy- There is no option to nominate your dispensary at the practice.

This is beyond our control but we have reported the problem (as have many other practices) and we are awaiting a fix- In the meantime, you can order repeat prescriptions by:

  • Dropping or posting a note into us at any time (we give you a printed list of your repeat medications each time if you'd like to use that)
  • Faxing the request to us on 01643 821770
  • Phoning through on 01643 822594 between 9.00-11.00 in the morning and 3.00-5.00pm in the afternoon. Please do not use the Dunster main surgery appointment line.

With Dr Kelham retiring, Dr Fawden will now be based mostly in Porlock and take over Dr Kelham’s list.  This means that Dr Fawden will not be available very much in Dunster so we have reallocated his patients to Dr Sherry (who is currently being covered by three doctors part time whilst she looks after her new baby).

 

It’s a time of tremendous change and we hope you will understand if there are occasional disruptions as we ease into our new patterns now Dr Kelham has retired.

Welcome to Dunster and Porlock Surgeries

Dunster and Porlock Surgeries work from two buildings - the Surgery in Dunster and the Medical Centre in Porlock. 

Our aim is to provide a caring, comprehensive service for you and your family.

Porlock Medical Centre is run by Dr Ben Fawden and Dr David Davies, with assistance from  and Dr Catherine Sherry and Dr Jenny Capps.  Patients are accepted from Porlock, Minehead, Oare and other areas within the locality by agreement with the doctor. It operates from purpose built premises in Porlock.  

Dunster Surgery is run by Dr Dr David Davies, with assistance from Dr Ben Fawden, Dr Catherine Sherry and Dr Jenny Capps, taking patients from an area between Washford and Minehead on the coast, and inland up to Wootton Courtenay, Timberscombe and Washford. 

We operate from a brand new, purpose built surgery overlooking the cricket pitch at the Timberscombe end of the village.

Information on your 'named GP'

Please be aware that all patients at Dunster and Porlock Surgeries have a named allocated GP: please contact us to find out who this is if you would like to know.  This does not mean you have to see that GP if you would prefer to see someone else (and they are available of course)
