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.  

Staying healthy
You can help yourself stay fit and healthy by:


Colds and flu
If you are over 65 years old, pregnant, or have a long-term health condition, like asthma or diabetes, you can have a free flu jab. www.nhs.uk/flu

If you have a cold don't ask your GP for antibiotics.  They don't cure colds and flu. www.nhs.uk/antibiotics

Keep Warm Keep Well
One of the best ways of keeping yourself well during winter is to stay warm.  Get a free copy of the 'Keep Warm Keep Well' advice leaflet from www.gov.uk

Stomach bugs
If you have sickness and diarrhoea don't spread it to others by visiting your local hospital.  Drink plenty of water and telephone your GP surgery if you have any concerns.  www.nhs.uk/novovirus
