New Improved Access Service
From 1st October 2018 as well as the usual GP services, patients in the area can book routine appointments with a local GP or Nurse in the evenings and at weekends. The service is being provided by an organisation called BEMS (BANES Enhanced Medical Services), which is a GP federation whose members include all the GP Practices within Bath & North East Somerset.
The service for Midsomer Norton is based at Paulton Hospital.
These appointments are particularly useful for those patients who work outside the area and struggle to access a GP until after their usual closing times, for more information or if you wish to book an appointment please ring the surgery.

Repeat Prescription Changes
There have been changes to how you obtain your repeat prescriptions. In future, when you request your repeat medication, the prescription will be sent electronically to the pharmacy that you nominate. If you still prefer to collect the prescription yourself, so you can take to any pharmacy, that can still continue. However, the electronic service should be quicker so we would like patients to nominate their chosen pharmacy.
To do this please let your pharmacy know that you wish them to be your nominated pharmacy.
It is most helpful if you are able to order your repeat medication on-line via our website or by smart phone app as this will speed up the process. Please ask at reception for details.
With the new system in place, you should be able to simply order on-line (at any time) and collect from the pharmacy, or our Chilcompton Dispensary, approximately 3 working days later. If you do not have access to the internet or have a smart phone, then just drop your repeat slip in as normal and collect from your pharmacy in the same way as you do.
