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"

Home Visits

Doctor's bagIf possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
