Phone problems

We are experiencing problems with both incoming and outgoing calls to both Dunster and Porlock today.  The problem is intermittent so please do persevere.  The problem with our provider is nationwide and they are working to correct it.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

Dunster and Porlock Surgeries merge

The two surgeries of Dunster Surgery and Porlock Medical Centre have merged as of 01 April 2017. We have already been working together for some time, so patients should notice no difference to how they are cared for and who they see in surgery- it does mean you can be seen in either Dunster or Porlock, giving a greater availability of appointments.

EXMOOR OSTEOPATHY

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).

Porlock Patients

You are able to contact the Surgery between the hours of 08:00am –18:30pm except for Wednesday, which is our half-day and we will be closed from 12:30pm. If you need to speak to a doctor on a Wednesday afternoon, please call Dunster Surgery on (01643) 821244.


When we are closed

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor. This service is intended for emergencies only, so please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
