HERE TO HELP

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 provide appointments every Tuesday evening, but if one of these appointments does not suit your needs then please speak with a member of our team.
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 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), MINEHEAD MEDICAL Cente (Minehead) and West Somerset Healthcare (Williton).
