Noticeboard

Wednesday 4th December

We have been notified that essential maintenance work will be carried out on our computers between 11am and 1:30pm on Wednesday 4th December. We will be unable to access medical records, issue prescriptions or book appointments while the maintenance work is carried out. We therefore ask that, except in emergencies, patients avoid contacting us between 11am and 1:30pm on the 4th December. 

Flu season is here!

If you; are a carer, are aged over 65, are currently pregnant or have a long-term medical condition you may be eligible for a flu vaccination. Please speak to a member of our reception team to book an appointment.

Prescription Requests

From 1st September 2019 there will be changes to the way we handle some prescription requests. Please see our Repeat Prescriptions page for more information.

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.  

Why Choose Well?

Choosing well means:

  • Spending less time waiting for treatment
  • Getting the best treatment for your symptoms
  • Freeing up the emergency department (A&E) to treat those with the most serious illnesses or injuries

Over a quarter of people who visit the emergency department could be treated by another NHS service.  Make sure you use the right service for your symptoms by checking the Choose Well Guide.
