You can now access routine appointments in the evening and at the weekend if you are registered with a Somerset GP.
Wells City Practice, Vine Surgery, Glastonbury Health Centre, Glastonbury Surgery and Wells Heath Centre are coming together to provide clinic time until 8pm Monday to Friday and also on Saturday mornings 9am - 11am. Any patient registered with one of these surgeries can request an appointment.
Each surgery will take turns in offering a late night clinic throughout the week and on Saturdays. Health staff working evenings and weekends will have access to your medical records and will be able to provide the same high standard of care as patients would expect during normal opening times. Your record will only ever be accessed with your consent and all information will be kept confidential.
