SNOW DISRUPTION (19 March 2018)
Please note that some staff including GPs, have not been able to safely make it into surgery today. We are trying to contact patients with booked appointments to try and arrange alternatives. There are likely to be significant delays today for which we apologise but hope you will understand.
Please take extreme caution as the surface of car parks can be very icy.
We're delighted to report that Exmoor Osteopathy, an excellent osteopathy partnership, are now running some of their clinics from Porlock Medical Centre and Dunster Surgery. Please see their section under 'Clinics & Services' (the reddy-brown tab at the top).
Improving access to general practice: evening and Saturday appointments now available
Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or on Saturday. Appointments will either take place at Dunster Surgery or a neighbouring practice in West Somerset. Please talk to a receptionist to find out more or to book an appointment.
NHS England have asked us to add the following text: "By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evening and weekend at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess"
