Improved Access

Frome Medical Practice is now working with Mendip Country Practice and Beckington Family Practice to improve patient care by offering appointments outside normal surgery hours. Frome Medical Practice is now open until 8pm Monday to Friday. Saturday morning appointments are offered on alternate weekends by both Beckington Family Practice and Mendip Country Practice from 8.30am-12noon. Mendip Country Practice also offers early morning appointments on Tuesdays from 7.30am.

Patients can book appointments at any of the three practices, subject to availability. The types of appointments available for booking include same day telephone consultations, pre booked GP appointments and other Health Care Professional appointments. The practice you are registered with will help to make sure you are given the right care, at the right time, with the right professional.

To book an evening or weekend appointment contact your registered practice. Calls for Frome Medical Practice registered patients should be made between 8am and 6.30pm. Our Care Navigator team can explain the process, and any consents required should you be offered an Improved Access appointment at Beckington Family Practice or Mendip Country Practice.
