Latest news



Burnham Medical Centre offers a limited number of GP appointments outside normal working hours.

These appointments are NOT for emergencies or to see a nurse, they are dedicated to those patients who have difficulty attending during normal opening hours.

Please be aware that, as with GP appointments made by the Doctor in our normal opening hours, it IS possible to book these appointments more than two days in advance.

During extended opening hours the front door will be locked. Please ring the doorbell for access.

BMC telephones will NOT be manned during extended opening hours. Staffing levels during extended opening hours mean that you will NOT be able to collect prescriptions at these times unless you are attending for a booked appointment.

Hannah Love, Carer Support Worker, Compass Carers writes:

I just wanted to thank you so much for all of your support with holding the event that took place at Berrow Health Campus on the 11th June 2014.

The venue was just perfect (as was the weather!)

During Carers Week I held 8 different events across North Sedgemoor. Across all of these events I engaged with 137 carers (approximately - this is the minimum figure) and 47 of them registered with us so that they could receive some form of support whether that is the magazine or a home visit.

At the event I held at Berrow Health Campus over 50 carers came and the members of the Burnham Carers Support Group came along and helped too. We held a raffle and a cake sale which raised £114.00. This £114 is now going to be used to help keep the Mulberry Centre Memory Loss support group and the Burnham On Sea carers support group running and allow for them to have a joint meal around Christmas time.

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful work that your surgeries do, the doctors are always very willing to help and to be informed of what is happening and this makes a huge difference to the carers within our community. 

I look forward to next year!
