The aim of the practice is to provide the highest possible primary medical care to our practice population, tailored to individual needs. We are committed to ongoing training and working together with patients and other support services. We consider the well-being of the practice team to be essential in achieving these aims.
Due to national guidance we are not able to offer any second COVID vaccines at this time. Any second vaccine appointment already booked will need to be rescheduled to a later date. We will be in touch as soon as we can, please do not phone the surgery as we need to keep our lines open for anyone with a health problem. Many apologies for the inconvenience.
Some people in Somerset aged 80+ have received a letter from the NHS asking them to book a COVID vaccination in Ashton Gate, Bristol. Anyone who would prefer an appointment closer to home should wait to be contacted by their GP surgery who will arrange one at their local hub.
We are starting to contact our patients as per NHS eligibility guidelines. For this reason, please make sure we have an up to date mobile number by using the "Change your Contact Details" button so we can contact you quickly. Please do not phone us to try to book a vaccine. We are not allowed to do this and it is important that we keep our lines open for anyone with a health problem.
We have recently been advised there is a SCAM circulating saying you are eligable for a COVID vaccine and asking for your personnal details. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS. When you are due for vaccination you will be contacted either by us or by the NHS and you will NOT be asked for your details.
This year, everyone aged over 50 is eligible for a free NHS flu vaccination, even if you do not usually qualify. Vaccines are now available for those aged between 50 and 64, so if you are in this age group and have not yet had a flu vaccination, please either use your Patient Access account to make an appointment online, or call us on 01749334383 after 2pm to book over the phone.
Please contact us if you become unwell or need to speak to a GP. We have online services available for you to Contact us Online where we aim to reply the same working day. Alternatively, use your Patient Access account to book routine appointments, order repeat prescriptions, get up to date health advice, and see a summary of your medical records online at any time of day, without the need to message or phone us.
Our receptionists are answering the phone during our normal opening hours but we are experiencing an increased demand so it may prove difficult to get through. We recommend you use the online services above whenever possible.
For your safety, we are minimising the amount of face to face contact in the practice. Once you have booked an appointment a GP will initially contact you either by phone or by video link to discuss the best option of care for you. Please only attend the practice in person if you are specifically asked to do so.
Unfortunately, COVID restrictions mean that most people have to wait longer for their outpatients appointments, hospital tests, and operations. All referrals are graded by the relevant consultant team based on clinical need. If your symptoms have changed or if you are very concerned, please let us know and we will update your referral.
If you need help with a non-urgent medical or admin request, please contact us online.
