When We Are Closed
A medical professional is always available for emergencies and sudden illness. NHS 111 can be contacted 24 hours a day by dialling 111.
The care of patients outside normal surgery hours and at weekends has been centralised and is managed by the Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group. This service is intended for emergencies only, so please do not call if your problem can wait until the next working day.
To contact a doctor when the surgery is closed at weekends and between the hours of 6.30 pm and 8.00 am Monday to Friday, please telephone NHS 111 and your call will automatically be forwarded to the Somerset Out of Hours Medical Service. They will deal with your call and, if necessary, arrange for you to see a doctor either at the Minehead Minor Injuries Unit or at your home if appropriate.
If you or a member of your family become critically ill and need immediate medical treatment, you should telephone 999 and ask for an ambulance.
