Noticeboard

IMPORTANT - CORONAVIRUS

You may have seen stories in the news about the outbreak of Coronavirus in China. The risk of catching the virus in the UK is very low however it is important to try to limit the spread of possible viruses. Therefore we are asking any patients who think they may have caught coronavirus to contact the surgery by telephone rather than attending the practice in person.  

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.  

Our PPG is made up both with patients who attend the quarterly meetings in the Medical Centre and patients who communicate with the Practice via email (our virtual PPG).

We find it valuable to be able to communicate with as many patients as possible and recognise that not all patients are able to attend meetings in the evening.

Should any patient wish to receive electronic updates from PPG including minutes of the meetings and updates on current work streams please contact Pauline Drummond, Practice Manager in the first instance. Her email address is:

pauline.drummond1@nhs.net

Many thanks.
