Improved Access

Somerset has been chosen by NHS England to introduce a new scheme that will allow you to make an appointment to see a health professional in a GP practice outside the usual working hours of GP surgeries.  The scheme works by getting a gropu of GP practices together so that they can open up in turn at the new times.

The following surgeries are offering Improved Access to all patients in the North Sedgemoor Federation.  If you cannot access an appointment at your own surgery it is now possible to access available appointments at other surgeries in your area,  please ask at Reception:

  • Brent Area Medical Centre
  • Burnham and Berrow Medical Centre
  • Cheddar Medical Centre
  • Highbridge Medical Centre
