Noticeboard

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.  

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.
