EXMOOR OSTEOPATHY

We're delighted to report that Exmoor Osteopathy, an excellent osteopathy partnership, are now running some of their clinics from Porlock Medical Centre and Dunster Surgery.  Please see their section under 'Clinics & Services' (the reddy-brown tab at the top). 

Improving access to general practice: evening and Saturday appointments now available

Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or on Saturday.  Appointments will either take place at Dunster Surgery or a neighbouring practice in West Somerset.    Please talk to a receptionist to find out more or to book an appointment.

NHS England have asked us to add the following text: "By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evening and weekend at a time that is most convenient to them.  This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients.  Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess"

  • Osteopathy is an established, well recognised system of diagnosis and treatment whose main emphasis lies on the structural integrity of the body

  •  It is a safe and natural therapy that focuses on the framework of the body consisting of the bones, ligaments, muscles and connective tissues

  • Osteopaths assess the musculo-skeletal system looking for areas of weakness, imbalance or excessive strain

  • They use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms.  They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring

What we treat
