EXTENDED OPENING HOURS

EXTENDED HOURS SURGERIES

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.

Evening and weekend appointments now available

Extended Opening Times and Venues

Improved Access is a new initiative acress Somerset whereby patients can make an appointment at extended times (up until 8pm at night Monday - Friday and on Saturday mornings) at other Practices across the local area. Details of the Practices working together to deliver extended access to appointments are listed in the table shown below.

Appointment types will vary, some being face to face and some on the 'phone. There will be a mixture of pre-bookable and same day appointments available across the week.They may be with a doctor but could also be with another healthcare professional such as a primary care practitioner or nurse.

We are keen to balance the importance of continuity of care with convenient access for patients whilst ensuring that the service is safe.

To book an evening or weekend appointment please contact your registered practice during normal opening times, this will help us to signpost you to the most appropriate option for your particular problem. By contacting us we can fully explain the process, ensure that the booking is appropriate (as we hope to be able to meet your needs by offering an appointment with your usuual GP) and cover all the relevant information (and consent) that we need to before we book an appointment for you.

All of the surgeries mentioned (except Cheddar) offer appointments on a Saturday morning on a rota basis
