Welcome to Porlock and Dunster Surgeries
Porlock Medical Centre and Dunster Surgery are two small rural surgeries that work together as sister practices.
Our aim is to provide a caring, comprehensive service for you and your family.
Porlock Medical Centre is run by Dr Ian Kelham. Patients are accepted from Porlock, Minehead, Oare and other areas within the locality by agreement with the doctor. It operates from purpose built premises in Porlock.
Dunster Surgery is run by Dr Ian Kelham and Dr David Davies, with assistance from Dr Ben Fawden, taking patients from an area between Washford and Minehead on the coast, and inland up to Wootton Courtenay, Timberscombe and Washford.
We operate from a brand new, purpose built surgery overlooking the cricket pitch at the Timberscombe end of the village.
Information on your 'named GP'
Please be aware that all patients at Dunster Surgery and Porlock Medical Centre have a named allocated GP: please contact us to find out who this is if you would like to know. This does not mean you have to see that GP if you would prefer to see someone else (and they are available of course)
Please see 'Survey Reports' (under 'Have your say' section down the right hand side for our latest patient surveys and also the 'Friends and Family Test')
