A MESSAGE TO ALL OF OUR PATIENTS FROM NURSE ANNE MARTYN


After 28 years at Cheddar Medical Centre I am finally hanging up my uniform. Over this time i have seen many changes which we have all had to adapt too, both staff and patients.


I would just like to say to you all, THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO TREAT AND CARE FOR YOU, IT HAS BEEN BOTH A PLEASURE AND A PRIVILEGE.


Look after yourselves and each each other and be kind to all. 


.........................................................................................................................................


WE'D LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO LET OUR PATIENTS KNOW THAT WE ARE NOW UNDER SIGNIFICANT PRESSURE WITH BOTH CLINICAL AND NON-CLINICAL MEMBERS OF OUR TEAM AWAY FROM WORK FOLLOWING POSITIVE COVID INFECTIONS.



WHILST THE GENERAL PUBLIC NO LONGER NEED TO ISOLATE, PEOPLE WORKING WITHIN THE HEALTH SECTOR DO STILL NEED TO ISOLATE FOR AT LEAST 6 DAYS FOLLOWING DIAGNOSIS.



AS I HOPE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND, THIS IS HAVING SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON OUR ABILITY TO PROVIDE OUR NORMAL SERVICE AND ACCESSIBILITY. PLEASE BEAR WITH US.



THANK YOU


Training Practice

Cheddar Medical Centre - Training practice Profile

Cheddar Medical Centre is enthusiastically and actively involved in training new GPs.

Each year we plan to be joined by a qualified doctor, with at least 4 years of hospital and GP experience, in either their second year of GP training when they stay with us for 6 months, or for their final 12 months of training towards the MRCGP exam, which entitles them to progress to independent practice as a GP.

Doctors who take up these posts, known as GP Registrars, will already have spent time in Cheddar Medical Centre over the previous years to get to know how we do things here and will even have done some surgeries of their own in that time. During their training they act as a full time doctor in the practice, seeing patients in surgery, visiting at home when necessary and learning about the running of a typically busy general practice.

All doctors in training are under supervision – Dr Cassie Thomas is the qualified trainer in the practice.

You may be offered an appointment with a doctor in training, including some surgeries in which their trainer will also be present. Reception staff will always let you know when this is the case. Our GP Registrars over the years have proved themselves keen, committed and skilled and we hope you will support them as much as they will want to support you.
