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.

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.

Here at Cheddar Medical Centre we safeguard all confidential information about you and your health. All staff are required to sign a confidentiality document when they start work at the surgery. This is to ensure that they are fully aware of the need to maintain patient confidentiality at all times.

So that we can all work together for your benefit, we may need to share information about you with others in healthcare. We only ever use or pass on information about you if healthcare workers have a genuine need for it and it is in your interest. Wherever possible we will remove personal details that would identify you.
