Patients with long term health conditions, young people and shift workers are just some of the people expected to benefit from a planned extension to the availability of appointments at Somerset's GP practices. This scheme fulfils a pledge made by the Government in 2015 to improve access to primary care services.
All practices in Somerset are currently contracted to deliver primary care medical services from 8 am until 6.30pm. Through this new national scheme patients registered at a Somerset GP practice will now also be offered appointments from 6.30pm until 8.00pm Monday to Friday and some appointments at weekends.
Crewkerne Health Centre is working with a group of practices in the Yeovil area to deliver this improved access. These practices are Buttercross Health Centre in Somerton, Church Street Surgery in Martock, South Petherton Surgery, Preston Grove Medical Centre (Yeovil), Penn Hill Surgery (Yeovil), Hendford Lodge Medical Centre (Yeovil), Hamdon Medical Centre (Stoke sub Hamdon), Ryalls Park Medical Centre in Yeovil, Oaklands Surgery (Yeovil), Ilchester Surgery, Abbey Manor Medical Practice (Yeovil), West Coker Surgery and Yeovil Health Centre (Middle Street, Yeovil).
Health staff working at evenings and weekends will have access to the patient's medical records when consent is given and will be able to provide the same high standard of care as patients would expect during normal opening hours.
Patients who wish to book a routine appointment on any evening or weekend can do so by telephoning our appointments line on 01460 72435(option 1) (8.30 am - 6.30pm) or visiting the practice (8.00 am - 6.30 pm). You can also visit one of the other practices named above to book an appointment. Extended hours appointments at Crewkerne Health Centre will be on a Monday evening, but staff will be able to book you an appointment at another local surgery on any other evening which is convenient for you as the patient. Same day appointments are available and to access these at the weekend, please contact the NHS 111 service who can book a same day appointment at the weekend with the Urgent Care Service (which is based at Yeovil District Hospital).
Please note that this is a service for ROUTINE appointments and this does not replace the current Somerset Out Of Hours Urgent Care Service. If patients or their family members become ill overnight or at the weekend and need medical advice or help outside practice opening times, they should continue to call NHS 111.
