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.  

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
