IMPORTANT - CORONAVIRUS

Due to the current coronavirus outbreak we have made significant changes to the way the practice operates. You can find more information about appointments, registrations, shielding, social distancing and what to do if home isn't safe on our dedicated Coronavirus Page

GP Changes

We are sad to announce that Dr Alsop has now left Cheddar Medical Centre. However we look forward to welcoming Dr Jo Durrant to the practice in May. Dr Ginn will be away from the practice on Maternity leave from the end of March. Dr Ginn’s patients will be looked after by Dr Simon Lynes until her return.

CQC Inspection 2019

We are delighted to announce that we were inspected by the Care Quality Commission in October and have been graded as "Good" full details of the inspection report can be found here.

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. 

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.  

Training Practice

Cheddar Medical Centre - Training practice Profile

Cheddar Medical Centre is enthusiastically and actively involved in training new GPs.

Each year we plan to be joined by a qualified doctor, with at least 4 years of hospital and GP experience, in either their second year of GP training when they stay with us for 6 months, or for their final 12 months of training towards the MRCGP exam, which entitles them to progress to independent practice as a GP.

Doctors who take up these posts, known as GP Registrars, will already have spent time in Cheddar Medical Centre over the previous years to get to know how we do things here and will even have done some surgeries of their own in that time. During their training they act as a full time doctor in the practice, seeing patients in surgery, visiting at home when necessary and learning about the running of a typically busy general practice.

All doctors in training are under supervision – Dr Cassie Thomas is the qualified trainer in the practice.

You may be offered an appointment with a doctor in training, including some surgeries in which their trainer will also be present. Reception staff will always let you know when this is the case. Our GP Registrars over the years have proved themselves keen, committed and skilled and we hope you will support them as much as they will want to support you.
