Bank Holidays


Please be aware that Monday 6th and Monday 27th May are BOTH bank holidays. If you have prescriptions for regular medication please make sure you that you have enough medication left to last you over the bank holiday weekend.  


Exciting News!


We are delighted to announce the arrival of three new doctors at Cheddar Medical Centre. Dr Emma Ginn joined us recently and will be followed by Dr Miriam Walsh and Dr Amy Alsop in the summer. 


As you may know Dr Hayward left us last year and her patients have been cared for by locum doctors in her absence. With the arrival of our new doctors we can begin the process of allocating a new usual GP to all of Dr Hayward's patients. If you are unsure of the name of your usual GP please speak to a member of our reception team who will be able to help.  


Text Messaging Service


We are introducing a new text message reminder service! More information and instructions on how to sign up can be found at the bottom of our appointments page.
