(for more Improved Access information see below)

This is an initiative across Somerset whereby patients can make appointments at extended times (up until 8pm at night Monday-Friday and on Saturday mornings) at other practices across the local area. Practices working together to deliver extended access to appointments in this local area are:Springmead, Tawstock, Essex House, Church View, The Meadows and Summervale.

Appointment types will vary, some being face to face and some on the 'phone and there will be a mixture of pre-bookable and same day appointments available across the week. They may be with a doctor but could also be with another healthcare professional such as a primary care practitioner or a nurse. We are keen to balance the importance of continuity of care with convenient access for patients whilst ensuring that the service is safe.

To book an evening or weekend appointment please contact your registered practice during normal opening times, this will help us to signpost you to the most appropriate option for your particular problem. By contacting us we can fully explain the process, ensure that the booking is appropriate and cover all the relevant information and consent that we need to before we book an appointment for you.

If you or your family members become ill overnight or at the weekend and need medical advice outside of opening times, you should continue to call NHS 111
