Improved Access

Evening and weekend GP Services

You can access some appointments in the evening and on Saturday mornings if you are registered at a practice in the Taunton, Wellington and Wiveliscombe area.

Patients who need to consult with a clinician in the evening or at the weekend can enquire about appointment availability by talking to the receptionist at your registered practice during normal opening hours. This consultation may be with a Practice in the Taunton area and may not be your registered Practice.

For urgent evening or weekend appointments outside opening hours, continue to call NHS 111

New evening and weekend GP services

This is a new 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 are listed on the poster below.

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 (as we hope to be able to meet your needs by offering an appointment with your usual GP) and cover all the relevant information (and consent) that we need to before we book an appointment for you. Further information is shown below.

How do I book an appointment with the new evening and weekend GP services?

If you need to access these appointments then please ring your usual surgery telephone number, 01823 333355. The receptionist will be able to advise on appointment availability.
