Welcome to Yeovil Health Centre, GP Surgery
(part of Oaklands Surgery)
Changes from April 16 2018
Last September we combined our practice list with the GP surgery above Boots in Yeovil (formerly Yeovil Health Centre) to provide services for both groups of patients; creating one larger, extended healthcare team.
Since the initial changes we have been reviewing the most popular times and locations of appointments across both sites, to ensure that we can offer the healthcare services that best meet our patient needs.
As a result, we have decided to adjust our opening hours as follows;
Oaklands Surgery, Birchfield Road
Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 4.00pm
The Health Centre above Boots (part of Oaklands Surgery)
Monday and Tuesday, 8am to 6.30pm
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 8am to 8pm
We have also been listening to your feedback about difficulties in getting through on the phone. To make it easier to speak to a member of the team to get medical advice, or to book an appointment at either location, you will now be able to call one phone number.
Appointment Line: 01935 709269, between 8am and 6.30pm, Monday - Friday.
For more information, please come along to one of our drop-in sessions:
Wednesday 28 March, between 11.30 and 12.30
Yeovil Health Centre:
Thursday 5 April, between 6 and 7pm
If you cannot attend a drop in session but would like to tell us your thoughts or ideas please complete a feedback form or email: Oaklandssurgery@nhs.net

Need urgent care at the weekend?
An Urgent Care Service runs on a weekend from Yeovil Hospital. Urgent medical appointments will be available on Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 6pm. To access appointments you must call NHS 111 who will advise you on the recommended action to take and an appointment will be made available if required.
It is the patient's responsibility to keep all of their contact information up to date with the practice. If you do not, this can lead to important information being sent to the wrong address or appointment reminder texts being sent to the wrong person.
If you have recently changed your address or contact number then please come into the surgery and let one of the reception team know.
