EVENING & WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS

We run pre-booked appointment slots on Tuesday evening after 6.30pm for people whose work commitments mean it's difficult to come at other times.

If you find it difficult to get to the surgery during normal working hours and would like an evening or Saturday morning appointment please speak to a receptionist.

To help improve access to our services Practices across West Somerset work together on a rota basis to provide evening and Saturday morning appointments for our shared patient lists. We regularly provide evening appointments on a Tuesday evening but if one of these appointments does not suit your needs then please speak with a member of our team so that we can help you arrange to be seen at one of the other practices in West Somerset on an evening that we do not provide appointments or on a Saturday morning.

The West Somerset Federation of GP Practices working together to provide improved services for patient care are:

Dunster & Porlock Surgeries (Dunster), Exmoor Medical Centre (Dulverton), Harley House Surgery (Minehead), Irnham Lodge Surgery (Minehead) and West Somerset Healthcare (Williton).
