Exciting News!

We are delighted to announce the arrival of three new doctors at Cheddar Medical Centre. This summer Dr Emma Ginn, Dr Miriam Walsh and Dr Amy Alsop have joined the practice. 

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.
