Somerset GPs open for Easter

Somerset GP surgeries are usually closed during Easter. This year, to support patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, they will stay open.

GP surgeries across Somerset will now be open on Friday the 10th of April and Monday the 13th of April between 8am and 6.30pm. 

This does not change the basic rules all surgeries have been following. You should not attend the surgery UNLESS you have an appointment.

Residents should ring their GP practice as usual to make an appointment. Patients will be triaged online or over the phone. This will ensure that patients are directed to the right person, in the right place, for their needs.   

The main priority remains supporting patients with urgent needs. If people need to be seen face to face they will be. Practices in Somerset will follow infection control guidelines designed to help protect patients and colleagues from becoming infected with COVID-19.   

Please try and help by using the NHS 111 service. This will give you general advice as a first port of call, rather than approaching your GP practice.
