Noticeboard

IMPORTANT - CORONAVIRUS

Due to the current coronavirus outbreak we have made significant changes to the way the practice operates. You can find more information about appointments, registrations, shielding, social distancing and what to do if home isn't safe on our dedicated Coronavirus Page

GP Changes

We are sad to announce that Dr Alsop has now left Cheddar Medical Centre. However we look forward to welcoming Dr Jo Durrant to the practice in May. Dr Ginn will be away from the practice on Maternity leave from the end of March. Dr Ginn’s patients will be looked after by Dr Simon Lynes until her return.

CQC Inspection 2019

We are delighted to announce that we were inspected by the Care Quality Commission in October and have been graded as "Good" full details of the inspection report can be found here.

Prescription Requests

From 1st September 2019 there will be changes to the way we handle some prescription requests. Please see our Repeat Prescriptions page for more information. 

Text Messaging Service

We are introducing a new text message reminder service! More information and instructions on how to sign up can be found at the bottom of our appointments page.  

GP Net Earnings

All GP practices are required to declare the mean net earnings (eg. Average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. This is required in the interests of the greater public accountability recognising GP pay is ultimately funded from tax paid by the public.

The average pay for GPs working in Cheddar Medical Centre in the last financial year was £73619 before tax and national insurance. This is for 2 full time GP, 3 part time GPs and 0 locums GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
