You may find an increased wait at present for a GP appointment.This is due to a significant reduction in the available number of GP's in the practice which will persist at least until Easter. We apologise for this situation and are doing our best to improve our service as soon as possible
Welcome to Crewkerne Health Centre
We hope this website will prove useful both to new patients and to patients who may have been registered with us for many years. We aim to provide a comprehensive and professional service and we hope the following information will enable you to make full use of the Health Centre.
The building has disabled access and facilities, including a hearing loop.
The Health Centre is adjacent to Crewkerne Community Hospital and we provide health care for patients living in Crewkerne and the surrounding villages within a five mile radius.
The doctors, practice nurses, counsellors and administrative staff work in conjunction with the district nurses, midwives, health visitors, school nurses and auxiliary nurses to form a Primary Health Care team. We believe that by working together within that ‘Team’ we can provide a comprehensive service to our patients in the community. We are committed to the values of traditional General Practice and we want to provide the best possible service.
The doctors operate a 'personal list' system and therefore ALL our patients (including children) have a named accountable GP to take responsibility for their care.
The practice also operates a Minor Injuries service which is available from 8am until 6.30pm from Monday to Friday. Any injury should have occurred in the last 48 hours and no appointment is necessary to access this service.
Please note photographic ID and Proof of Address will need to be shown to register for these services for the first time
