Seeing the Doctor or Practice Nurse 

Surgeries are by appointment and we are open 08:15 to 18:00 (Mon-Fri) 

There are also book ahead appointments available on Tuesday evenings 18:30 until 20:30.  These sessions are for pre-booked appointments only.  We are not able to take telephone calls or issue repeat prescriptions during these Tuesday evening sessions.

To make an appointment

Telephone Minehead 703441 or why not book on line at or by visiting the surgery.

Our telephone lines open at 08:00 on weekdays.  We have appointments available every day to be booked on that day, but the majority of appointments can be booked up to four weeks in advance with all clinicians.

Medical emergencies are always fitted in, however in these circumstances the receptionist may need to ask you for some details in order to make sure you see the appropraite clinician.  You are welcome to book an appointment with any Doctor you choose.  Appointments are usually booked at ten-minute intervals. If you want a longer appointment please ask the Receptionist.


Surgery times vary throughout the working day. If for any reason you are unable to attend an appointment please contact the surgery to cancel it.  We have hours of Doctor and Nurse hours lost per year due to patients just not turning up for their appointment.   Regular abuse of our appointments system could lead to removal from the Practice list.

Improved Access

If you find it difficult to get to the surgery during normal working hours and would like an evening or Saturday morning appointment please ask one of our reception team.

To help improve access to our services Practices across West Somerset work together on a rota basis to provide evening and Saturday morning appointments for our shared patient lists. We provide appointments every Tuesday evening, but if one of these appointments does not suit your needs then please speak with a member of our team. We can help you arrange to be seen at one of the other practices in West Somerset on an evening that we do no provide appointments or a Saturday morning.

The West Somerset Federation of GP Practices working together to provide improved services for patient care are:

Dunster & Porlock Surgeries (Dunster), Exmoor Medical Centre (Dulverton), Harley House Surgery (Minehead), Irnham Lodge Surgery (Minehead) and West Somerset Healthcare (Williton).
