IMPORTANT - CORONAVIRUS

Due to the current coronavirus outbreak we have made significant changes to the way the practice operates. You can find the most up to date information on our dedicated Coronavirus Page

Easter Bank Holidays

Cheddar Medical Centre will be closed on Friday 10th and Monday 13th April due to the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. Please ensure you have enough of your regular medication to last over the bank holiday weekend. If you need to order prescriptions allow plenty of time for your request to be processed. 

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.  

registeringNew Patient Registration

Anyone living within our Practice boundary is welcome to apply to register with us. Please bring along your medical card to the surgery.

If you cannot find it we can give you a form to fill in.

The form requests details such as:

  • your name and address
  • your date of birth
  • your NHS number (if you know it)
  • other information, such as the name and address of your previous GP

We will also ask to see proof of your identity, for example:

  • photo identity, such as your passport or driving licence
  • proof of your address, such as a recent (no more than 3 months old) utility bill (gas, electric, water or phone bill, but not a mobile phone bill) or council tax bill

Your identification documents will be photocopied by the receptionist and attached to your medical records.

When you register you will be encouraged to indicate a preferred doctor and we will make every effort to provide appointments with them when requested.

You can, of course, see any of our other doctors if you prefer.
